What suvat equation(s) can you use based on the property about the maximum vertical height?
Also make sure you get the displacement correct.

Then is the displacement just 2.8m?
Would I use s=Ut +1/2at^2 rearranged for U ?
I’ve got my horizontal and vertical the wrong way round

There is no reference to time in the question part, so no.
The ball reaches a height of 2.8 above the ground. So the displacement is ....
You've drawn a diagram which is good, but you've incorrectly marked on the maximum height.

Then 2.8-2.5=0.3m?
It says above the ground so I assumed 2.8m above the point

Yes. The initial point is 2.5 above the ground, so the vertical dispacement from the initial point is 0.3.

So I would use v^2=U^2+2as vertically
but isn’t U at max height =0

No, U = ... is what you have to show.
However, you've almost got the right idea ...

I got 3/5=gt^2
I need to either sub something into t or use another equation

Its not that suvat equation as time is not involved in this question part.
Your previous post had the right suvat equation to use for vertical motion.

You;ve got a small sign error at the start, just think about the direction of a and s. Also, your square gets dropped, then reappears?

It should just be a couple of lines, hence the 2 marks for the question part.

I’ve sorted it , how should I go about b ? I’ve done the rest

Based on your diagram and the form of the answer, do you have any ideas?
From part a) you have the initial speed (as a function of alpha).

Probably, but what do those equations represent?
Why can you sub time from one into the other?
