At the beginning of a basketball game, a referee tosses the ball straight up with a speed of 4.6 m/s. A player cannot touch the ball until after it reaches its maximum height and beings to fall down. What is the minimum time that a player must wait before touching the ball?

V = Vo + g*t = 0 at max. h.
4.6  9.8t = 0
