    A basketball player grabbing a rebound jumps 70 cm vertically.
    How much (total) time does the player spend in the top 25 cm of this jump?
    How much (total) time does the player spend in the bottom 25 cm of this jump?
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



    2. Relevant equations

    You aren't going to be given an answer without showing that you've tried, and you definitely aren't going to be given an answer for being rude.

    Have some hints:
    a = -9.81 m/s/s
    s (displacement) = 0.70 m
    v at peak of jump = 0 m/s

    use constant acceleration formulae.
