**Kinematics -- projectile motion -- time to maximum height?**

## Homework Statement

The nozzle of a fire hose discharges water at a speed of 10 m/s. The nozzle is aimed straight up. How long does it take for a water drop to reach its maximum height?

Start with translating the question:

vi= 10 m/s

vf= 0 m/s

t=? s

a= -9.8 m/s^2

delta−x= ?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

OK, so I'm assuming that solving this takes 2 steps. One entails finding the maximum height, then using a kinematic formula to find time. Is that logic sound?
