1. h=ho+vi*t-1/2 g t^2
15=0+20t-4.9t^2

Put it in the form of a quadratic equation

at^2+bt+c=0 and use the quadratic equation.

3. The actual value of g on Earth is 9.8 m/s^2, which is what BobPursley assumed.

I have no idea you were asked to assume g = 15 m/s^2.

Your follow-up question should have been posted separately.

Use a = dV/dt = dV/ds * ds/dt = V* dV/ds
