- Homework Statement:
- t = 4s , g = 10 m/s^2

- Relevant Equations:
- I don't really know which equation to use...

Hi,

I was given this problem saying that a ball is thrown vertically up in the air and returns to its initial position after 4 seconds. The acceleration due to gravity is given to be equal to 10m/s^2.

I tried to attempt this problem by using the equation :

v^2 - v0^2 = 2ah by considering terminal velocity = 0. Despite this, i still can't determine the total distance travelled.

Sorry in advance if I have misused any vocabulary sincei translated this from french.

Thank you!
