Here is my question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A stone is thrown straight up with a speed of 15.0 m/s. How fast will it

be moving when its altitude is 8.0 m above the point from which it was

thrown? How much time elapses while the stone is reaching that height?

(Is there one answer or are there two answers? Why?)

---

I know that the stone goes up and then down again, so there could be two answers, but how exactly would I solve this problem?
