Homework Help: Kinematic Relationships

  1. Nov 9, 2005 #1
    Question 3
    A toy rocket is fired vertically upwards with an initial velocity of 29.2 ms-1. Calculate how long (in s) the rocket stays in the air before it returns to the ground.
    i've used t=(v-u)/a and then multiplied the answer by 2
    is this the correct method to calculate the answer.
    thanks in advance

    v is 0 at the apex.

    Edit: Sorry, I see you multiplied by 2.
