In a soccer match Putu kicked the ball with the elevation angle $\displaystyle \alpha$ so that it reached the maximum height 10 m. How long must he wait until the ball fall to the ground if g = $\displaystyle 10m/s^2$? I don't know how to do it if the initial velocity isn't known. Can someone help me?

at the max height, $v_y = 0$ ... $10 = 0  5t^2$ solve for $t$

$\displaystyle t=\sqrt2$?
