An object is thrown upwards with a speed of 14.0 m/s. How long does it take to reach its maximum height

  • Physics -

    use the formula

    v=u+at
    where
    v= final velocity (0)
    u= initial velocity (+14 m/s)
    a= acceleration du to gravity, -9.81 m/s/s
    negative because it accelerates in the negative y-direction.
    t= time in seconds
