The height of a ball thrown directly up with a velocity of 40 feet per second from a initial height of of 5 feet is given by the equation h(t)=16t^2+40t+5, where t is the time in seconds and h is the ball’s height, measured in feet. When will the ball hit the ground? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.
