An air track glider is placed on a linear air-track which is slightly tilted. It is given a velocity of 1.5 metres per second up the track. If its acceleration is 2 metres per second squared down the track, find the time at which it is 1m below its starting point.

Please explain how to solve this problem. Thanks

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

s=(u+v)/2 xt

1= (1.5+v)/2 x t

t=1-(1.5+v)/2
