The referee throws a jump ball vertically in the air. Besides the force(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

of gravity, the drag force acts on the ball. The drag force is given by

the product of the friction coefficient with the square of the velocity.

The friction coefficient is 0.1. The NBA ball mass is 0.6 kilograms. The

initial ball velocity is 10 meters/second. How much time does it take

for the ball to slow down to 2 meters/second?

So do you set

Fdrag = Fgravity

So far I have Fdrag = u x v^2

where Vi=10 and Vf=2 a= 9.8

I'm really bad at physics can some Please help me

Thanks
