# A ball is projected upwards from the foot of the tower. The ball crosses the tower twice after an interval of 6 sec and ball reaches the ground after 12 sec.What is the height of tower?

time taken to go uptoU and then come back to the ground required 12 sec.
So 6 s up then 6 s in coming down.
the time taken between climbing from T to U and then coming to T again(crossing T twice) =6 s
so time taken to go upto T from the ground=(12-6)/2=3s
now if we consider the journey from ground to U:
0=u-6x10 .......  putting in 1st eq.
u=60 m/s
now tower height:H=
H=60x3-1/2  x10x3x3.....putting in second eq
H=135 m
