Homework Help: Conservation of Energy Problem

  1. Oct 15, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    0.40 kg ball is thrown with a speed of 9 m/s at an upward angle of 29°.
    (a) What is its speed at its highest point? (Use conservation of energy.)

    2. Relevant equations
    Work of non conservative forces = change in KE + change in PE

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I am not sure how to go about this.

    Is this equation correct? 0=-1/2(0.40kg)(v^2)+(-(0.40kg)(9.8m/s^2)h
