take downward direction as positive

Y=uyt + at2/2

put Y=100m, a=g=10 m/s2, uy=0

100=5t2

t=2√5 sec

now t/2=√5 sec

distance covered after t/2 sec

again apply the formula

Y=uyt + at2/2

and put t=√5 sec

Y=10*√5*√5/2

Y=25m

height from ground= 100-25=75m

All the best.

See, by 2 kinematical equation s=ut+1/2 at(squared) given s=100 t=t u=0 therefore 100=1/2*a*t(squared) so a=200/t(squared) to find height when t=t/2 s=ut+1/2at(squared) s=1/2*200/t(squared)*t(squared)/4 s=25m the body reaches the height of 25m at t/2 seconds

body takes t sec to reach the groung..

initial velocity is zero..

s=ut +at2 /2

-100=-gt2 /2

t=2sqrt5 sec

now displacement of particle=s=gT2 /2

for T=t/2=sqrt5sec

S=25m

so the particle is at (100-25)=75m above the ground at T=t/2...
