A ball is throwing downward with an initial velocity of 10 m/sec. If the final velocity is 20 m/s, what is the time?

David Q/R
The equation you want is v = u + at, where u = initial velocity; v = final velocity; a = acceleration and t = time. v = 20. u = 10. a = 9.81 m/sec, though I'd guess from the numbers supplied that you may be expected to assume that a is approximately 10. You'll then be able to work it out from the above.

When a ball is thrown up into the air, it makes the shape of a parabola. The equation S= 10t^2 + v*t + k gives the height of the ball at any time, t in seconds, where âvâ is the initial velocity (speed) in meters/sec and âkâ …
