Explanation:

Given that,

Basket ball is drop from height

H=10m

It is dropped on planet mass

And the acceleration due to gravity on Mars is given as

g= 3.7m/s²

Time taken for the ball to reach the ground

Initial velocity of the body is zero

u=0m/s

Using equation of motion: free fall

H = ut + ½gt²

10 = 0•t + ½ × 3.7 ×t²

10 = 0 + 1.85t²

10 = 1.85t²

Then, t² =10/1.85

t² = 5.405

t = √ 5.405

t = 2.325seconds

So the time the ball spend on the air before reaching the ground is 2.325 seconds
