A student standing on the ground throws a ball straight up. The ball leaves the student's hand with a speed of 11.0 m/s when the hand is 1.50 m above the ground.
How long is the ball in the air before it hits the ground? (The student moves her hand out of the way.)

What do you know about the relationship between height and time for an object moving under the influence of gravity?
