If a pro basketball player has a vertical leap of about 35 inches, what is his hang time? Use the hang-time function V = 48T²

  • math -

    Distance, V, in inches travelled from rest under gravity
    = (1/2)gt²
    = (1/2)32'*12"/' t²
    Since the hang time T includes upward and downward movements, T=2t, so equation above becomes
    192(T/2)² = V

    Substitute V=35" to get
    Solve to get
    T=sqrt(35/48)=0.854 sec.
