    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    5. An object is thrown vertically upwards with a speed of 72 kilometres per hour. How long does it take to reach a point 25 meters below the starting point? You can take g as 10 ms-2 for convenience.

    Here is my answer. I got 4 yet the answer is 5.




    Am I correct?
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
