Prof Jishi,
I was having problem solving this in my HS physics. Please help. This was in your Lecture 1-Kinematics 1-D

Problem: A basketball player grabbing a rebound
jumps 76.0cm vertically. How much total time (ascent and descent) does the player spend in the top 15.0cm of this jump and in the bottom 15.0cm?
