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

A ball of mass 0.35 kilograms is currently 1.1 meters off the floor and has a speed of 1.3 meters per second straight up. Assuming no energy is converted by air friction, how high will the ball go?

2. Relevant equations

PE=mgh

KE=1/2mv^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Since there is no friction or work, i set the equation as mgh=mgx+1/2mv^2, solving for x(final height) but I get the wrong answer. And I'm pretty sure this is the right equation to use.
