Correct Answer - Maximum height is 122.5 m and total time si % s+5s =10s
Accrding to the equation of motion under gravity
u= intial velocity of the ball
v= final velocity of the ball
s= Height achieved by the ball
g= Acceleration due to gravity
At maximum height , final velocity of the ball is zero ,i.e., v=0
u=49 m/s
During upward , g=-`9.8ms^(-2)`
let h be the maximum height attained by the ball
Hence ,
`implies h=49^(2)//(2xx9.8)`
`implies h=2401//19.6 =1225.5`
Let t be the times taken by the ball to reach the height 122.5 m. then according to the equation of motion :
We get
`9.8 t=49`
Also ,
time of ascent = Time of descent
therefore , total time taken by the ball to return `=5+5=10 s`
