Homework Help: Velocity against time

  1. Oct 5, 2004 #1
    Hi...I done a question on velocity-time...I just wanted to amke sure if I am right......the question is: A soldier shoots a bullet vertically into the air at 450 m s^-1. How long does it take for bullet to reach maximum hight...air resistance can be ignored....so I used v=u+at, my final answer was 45 seconds..am I right...please reply anyone :uhh:

    Assuming you're using 10 m/s^2 for g, yes.
