**Damon**, Tuesday, January 3, 2012 at 8:15pmI have not seen a gravity problem in feet instead of meters for a while.

37 = -16 t^2 + 48 t + 5

16 t^2 - 48 t + 32 = 0

t^2 - 3 t + 2 = 0

(t-2)(t-1) = 0

t = 1 or 2

so

the ball is at 37 feet after one second on the way up and at two seconds on the way down
