In projectile motion, the time it takes for an object to get from a certain height to the peak is the same time as the time to reach the same height from the peak, correct? Well then, I came across something in which an object was shot in the air via a slingshot and peaked at about 1 second. Then, it took approximately 2 seconds to return to the ground at the same height. Is this possible? If so, how? (Lets say that there may be air resistance and wind as an influence)

2. Relevant equations

Kinematics Equations:

V = Vo +at

x = 1/2(Vo+V)t

x = Vit + 1/2at^2

V^2 = Vo^2 + 2ax

3. The attempt at a solution

I thought that when in projectile motion, an object would have the same time reaching the peak as it would reaching the ground from the peak. (Symmetry).
