If I'm given that someone releases a ball at x distance away from the ground how do you calculate how long it takes to fall?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Another problem I have is finding the amount of time it takes to get to the top of an arc after you've thrown a ball and you're given the distance it is from the release to the top of the arc.

Both these problems assume 9.8m/s^2 acceleration.
