Kinematics of a thrown football - Find the path

- A quarterback throws a football at 25 m/s at a certain angle above the horizontal. If it took the ball 3.2 s to reach the top of its path, how long was it in the air?

- I have absolutely no idea how to do this :(

Re: Velocity

I could be wrong, but if there is no air resistance, then the ball would stay at the same velocity the entire time...

>_> Woops. I didn't notice you were asking about the time...

Re: Velocity

hahhaha I think I know this one. It takes the exact amount of time for the ball to go up and to come down so just 3.2 x 2 I believe. but it sounds a bit too easy....
