**2 seconds**. The time taken for the body to reach the
ground does not depend on its mass.

### A ball is thrown with enough speed straight up so that it is in the air several seconds What is its velocity 2s before it reaches its highest point?

All the time the ball is in the air, its acceleration is 9.8
meters (32.2 feet) per second2 downward. In other words ...
Every second it's in the air, its downward speed is that much
faster than it was one second earlier.
When it reaches its highest point, its speed will be zero.
Two seconds earlier, its DOWNWARD speed was that much LESS than it
is at the top. In other words ...
Its UPWARD speed was that much MORE than it is now.
So 2 seconds ago, its upward speed was (2 x 9.8) = 19.6 meters per
second / (2 x 32.2) = 64.4 feet per second.

### A ball is thrown upward from the ground with a speed of 36.0 ms At what time after being thrown does the ball have a velocity of zero?

A ball that isn't being held up by anything will accelerate
vertically because of the influence of gravity. It's rate of
acceleration will be 9.78 meters per second2, directed downward,
meaning that each second, its speed in the downward direction will
be 9.78 meters per second faster than it was 1 second earlier. When
this particular ball is released, its downward speed is
negative 36 meters per second. How many times (seconds) does
gravity need to increase its downward speed by 9.78 m/s in order to
increase its downward speed to zero ? (36 / 9.78) = 3.681
seconds (rounded). That's when the negative downward speed
has increased to zero, and becomes a positive downward speed. So
it's also the peak of the toss.

###### Asked in Physics, Social Sciences, Skydiving

### What is the skydiver's acceleration?

Initially, like any falling object, a skydiver's downward
acceleration is 9.8 meters/seconds^2, or about 28-35 feet per
second squared. This acceleration reduces over a few seconds and
approaches zero as the skydiver reaches terminal velocity. This is
because air resistance becomes a larger and larger force as speed
increases.

### What is the average velocity between 0 and 3 seconds?

The average velocity has two parts to it: The average speed and
the average direction.
The average speed is:
(the distance you travel between 0 and 3 seconds) divided by
(3).
The average direction is:
the direction from (the place where you started at 0 seconds) to
(the place where you finished at 3 seconds).
