    A paricle P is projected vertically upwards from a point A with speed 21ms^-1. the point A is 17.5m above horizontal ground. the particale P moves freely under gravity until it reaches the ground with a speed of 28ms^-1. After time t seconds after projection, P is 19m above A Find the possible values of t.

    How far have you got?

    Draw a sketch of the motion and choose a direction to be +ve [either up or down].

    Then write down the vlues you know:

    u =
    v =
    a =

    etc.

    Post your working so far please.

    Vertical displacement, s, will be 19
    U is 21ms^-1
    a=-g (since we're taking upwards as positive)
    t=T
    Form quadratic in T and solve.
