**Reiny**, Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 8:44pmyour opening function should be

h = -16t^2 + 40t

h is supposed to have a value of 25

25 = -16t^2 + 40t

16t^2 - 40t + 25 = 0 , looks like a perfect square

(4t - 5)^2 = 0

4t = 5

t = 5/4

it will take 5/4 seconds

I don't know what "vertical motion model" means, never heard that term
