A student at the top of a building of height h throws ball 1 upward with a speed of v_{i}and then throws ball 2 downward with the same initial speed, v_{i}. How does the final speed of ball 1, v_{1f}, compare to the final speed of ball 2, v_{2f}, when they reach the ground?

v_{1f}= ______ multiplied by v_{2f}

2. Relevant equations

a = delta v/delta t

v_{f}= v_{i}+ a(delta t)

3. The attempt at a solution

I drew a picture showing the person throwing ball 1 upward and then it descending and ball two falling to the ground.
