Answer:

#2.31s#

Explanation:

here,the upward movement of the projectile will be due to the upward component of its velocity i.e #32 sin (pi/4)#

So,we can apply, #v=u-g t# to find the time taken to reach its maximum height.

At,maximum height upward component of velocity is zero,initial upward velocity is #32 sin (pi/4)#

So, #t= (32 sin (pi/4))/g=2.31 s#
