The answer will depend on what "it" is, and on what its initial velocity is.

### A baseball is hit straight up at an initial velocity of 150 meters per second. What will be the baseball's speed when it hits the ground?

In a vacuum it would fall back to the same height at the same speed, 150m/s. It would then gain another minuscule fraction of speed as it fell from bat-height down to the ground. In the real world, a falling baseball will reach a maximum speed of around 42 meters per second because the air resistance slows it down. This is called Terminal Velocity.

### Will a ball drop rest reach the ground quicker than the one lunched from the same height but with and initial horizontal velocity?

No. What counts in this case is the vertical component of the velocity, and the initial vertical velocity is zero, one way or another.

### What is the rock's approximate velocity just prior to hitting the ground?

To answer this question one would need to know the rock's initial height and velocity.

### What do you you need to know to determine how far a projectile travels horizontally?

initial velocity, angle of launch, height above ground When a projectile is launched you can calculate how far it travels horizontally if you know the height above ground it was launched from, initial velocity and the angle it was launched at. 1) Determine how long it will be in the air based on how far it has to fall (this is why you need the height above ground). 2) Use your initial velocity to determine the horizontal component of velocity 3) distance travelled horizontally = time in air (part 1) x horizontal velocity (part 2)

### A baseball is hit straight up at an initial velocity of 100MS How long will it take to hit the ground?

Take acceleration of gravity = 9.8 m/s2 .The ball stops rising and starts falling in (100/9.8) seconds.It returns to the height of the bat in 2 x (100/9.8) = 20.408 seconds. (rounded)
