A basketball player jumps 1 meter high off the ground, turns around and starts back down.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Estimate the time she is within 30 cm of the top of her trajectory (her hang time.)

(HINT: Calculate the time it takes to fall 30 cm from rest and double it.)

Explain why that works

note g=9.8

Ive been trying it with x=VoT + 1/2aT^2 but just cant get it right. Any help would be appreciated.
