let's say i have a 5kg ball and i throw it up with an initial V of 30m/s with air resistance of 25, how would i find the work done by air resistance on the way up and on the way down?

Air resistance is a force that opposes the motion of an object through the air. It is caused by the collision of air molecules with the surface of the object. Air resistance affects a thrown ball by slowing it down and changing its trajectory.
The amount of air resistance on a thrown ball depends on the surface area, shape, and speed of the ball. A larger surface area, a less streamlined shape, and a higher speed will result in greater air resistance.
Air resistance work on a thrown ball can be calculated using the equation W = Fd, where W is the work done by air resistance, F is the force of air resistance, and d is the distance the ball travels.
Air resistance work is the energy that is lost due to the force of air resistance, while kinetic energy is the energy of motion. Air resistance work decreases the kinetic energy of a thrown ball, causing it to slow down and eventually come to a stop.
The angle of release can affect air resistance work on a thrown ball by changing the surface area and shape of the ball as it travels through the air. A higher angle of release may result in a greater amount of air resistance work due to increased surface area, while a lower angle may result in less air resistance work.
