(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A stone is thrown vertically upward with a speed of 14.0 m/s from the edge of a cliff 95.0 m high

(a) How much later does it reach the bottom of the cliff?

(b) What is its speed just before hitting?

(c) What total distance did it travel?

2. Relevant equations

Well I'm not quite sure what equations to use, thats the problem.

3. The attempt at a solution

On this problem I'm confused about what equation to use in order to find these answers. How do I factor in that upward velocity of 14.0 m/s? I know that my acceleration is -9.8 so do I just take 14t-9.8t? How do you know the speed just before hitting or what total distance it traveled?
