Michael Jordan was said to have a hang time of 3 seconds. Use kinematic equations to determine the height to which MJ could leap if he had a hang time of 3 seconds. Hint: You are solving for distance!

Well, at the top, it took 1.5 seconds to come down.
h=1/2 g t^2 where g=9.9m/s^2 and t=1.5
h= 1/2 9.8 * 2.25
I don't believe the time unless it was slow motion. 
11.1m
