A stone is thrown vertically up with a velocity of 20ms/s. The maximum height reached by the stone and the total time taken by it to fall on the ground are
(1) 20m and 2 s. (2) 20m and 4 s. (3) 40m and 2 s. (4) 40m and 4 s.
The Attempt at a Solution
V = s/t
V = 20/1 (since the time taken for the stone is 2s to go up and then come falling down, I divided it by 2 and I chose the first answer as it seemed to get my favorable answer)
V = 20m/s.
But according to the scheme it's the second answer and I really don't understand how it can come, providing that even if they are divided you get the velocity 5m/s.
