    Think about every objects acceleration due to gravity on earth.
    At GCSE, you learn that it's 10m/s^2 downwards.
    Then it's maximum height is the distance travelled when it reaches a speed of 0m/s.
    From that you can work out the time taken from t = change in speed / a
    And you can also work out average speed since it's a constant decceleration you can day the average speed is the average of 20 and 0 which is 10.
    And therefore distance travelled = average speed * time.

    hey this might sound dumb but why are you "avoiding suvat due to it being GCSE"? are we not supposed to use that at gcse? I learnt suvat in physics and thats literally the only thing i understand and thats how i managed to understand my test. (im year 9, taking my gcse's in 2019)

    In my GCSEs we didnt do SUVAT in maths or in physics. It's probably new in your GCSEs
