Homework Statement


You throw a ball directly upward giving the ball an initial velocity of 10m/s. Neglecting friction, what would be the maximum height of the ball? (Explain why you do not need to know the mass of the ball)


Homework Equations


not sure


The Attempt at a Solution


vi=10m/s d=?
not much of an attempt, i know

The ball has an initial kinetic energy, which is transformed into an increase in gravitational potential energy.

Max height occurs when vy equals zero.

so if v1 = 10 m/s , think wut would the speed be at maximum height , and remember there is always the acceleration of gravity [ down ] acting on all object thrown upward!
