This question is bothering me much, please answer in detail. For example if you throw a ball with initial speed (air resistance exists!) with an angle from horizontal. 1) Does it take more time for ball to reach its maximum height or to fall from maximum height to ground. 2) What horizontal distance is bigger? The distance ball moved before reaching maximum height or distance after reaching maximum height and then reaching the ground. What I think: The speed in horizontal direction is getting smaller all the time, so it is higher before reaching the maximum height then after it is going down. (so it might move bigger horizontal distance before reaching maximum height BUT) But if the ball takes more time to land after it reaches maximum height, then the extra time might overcome the distance moved before reaching maximum height.
