a ball is projected upwards from the top of the tower with the velocity 50 m/s making an angle 30 degree with the horizontal.The height of tower is 70m.After how many seconds from the instant of throwing will the ball reach the ground?

Dear student,
The Total time after which the ball would reach the ground would be given by:
T=\frac{2usin\theta}{g}+\sqrt{\frac{2h}{g}}=\frac{2\times 50\times sin30^{\circ}}{10}+\sqrt{\frac{2\times 70}{10}}=5+3.74=8.74 secRegards

@ananya: yes the answer is 7.
Let throwing point be (0,0). Horizontal be x-direction and vertical be y-direction
Initial velocity = (50cos30) i + (50sin30) j,
a = -10 j
s = ut + 0.5*a*t2,
s = (50*cos30*t) i + (50*sin30*t – 5*t2) j,
it will reach the ground when y-coordinate of ball is -70,
So, (50sin30*t – 5t2) = -70
or, 25*t-5*t2=-70, t2-5t-14=0
(t-7)(t+2)=0 => t=7

Why can`t we calculate it by sumit`s formula.

Taking vertical downward motion of projectile from point of projection to ground ,we have 
u=-50sin30°=-25m/s
a=+10m/s^2. ;s=70m ,t=?
Using  S=ut+1/2at^2
So, 70=-25×t+1/2×10×t^2
Or 5t^2-25t-70=0
Or t^2-5t-14=0
On solving,t=7s.{Here t^2 means t raise to power 2}

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to your problem.

Let throwing point be (0,0). Horizontal be x-direction and vertical be y-direction
Initial velocity = (50cos30) i + (50sin30) j,
a = -10 j
s = ut + 0.5*a*t2,
s = (50*cos30*t) i + (50*sin30*t – 5*t2) j,
it will reach the ground when y-coordinate of ball is -70,
So, (50sin30*t – 5t2) = -70
or, 25*t-5*t2=-70
t^2-5t-14=0
(t-7)(t+2)=0
t=7

Thanks and Regards
