I was wondering, is there a formula I can use to calculate the height of a which a basketball can achieve in a controlled environment situation, therefore, factors such as wind, debris, spin do not influence the results provided.

A brief explanation of how the formula works would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: I have calculated the Velocity by using:

GPE = KE

mgh = 1/2mv^2

0.45*9.8*3 = 1/2*0.45*v^2

13.23 = 0.225*v^2

13.23/0.225 = v^2

v = sqrt58.8

v = 7.668115805m/s

I'm just unsure how to imply this information into calculating it's maximum height achieved.
