Step 1.
To find the total flight time, we use the general function y(t), giving the y coordinate of a projectile as a function of time:
(1) y = yo + Vo t + .5 a t^2
Step 2.
In this event, the rock is at ground level initially and also at the completion of the total flight, so y=0 and also yo= 0. Also, during the whole flight, the acceleration a= -g, the free fall acceleration of a projectile. (Upward is positive, so downward is negative.) Substituting these knowns ...
