    What have you tried so far? What will be the height of each ball at any instant in time?

    I calculated how much time it would take for each ball to cover that distance.

    Gravity ball - 1.53 seconds
    Ball being shot up - .6 seconds


    I just need to know at what time both of them are at the same height.
