# Find the maximum height and the range of the ball.

## Homework Statement

The acceleration due to gravity on the moon has a magnitude of 1.62m/s^2. Assume that the ball is kicked on the moon instead of on the earth. Find(a) the maximum height H and (b) the range that the ballwould attain on the moon.
acceleration=1.62 m/s^2
H=?
R=?
Vy=0 m/s
Voy=?

H=-Voy^2/ 2(Ay)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Ok I have no Idea what the initial velocity is, so how can I calculate this problem.

Are you sure you've given all the information stated in the question?

Well here's the original question. Review Interactive Learning Ware 2.3 at www.wiley.com/college/cutnell in preparation for this problem. The acceleration due to gravity on the moon has a magnitude of 1.62m/s^2. Assume that the ball is kicked on the moon instead of on the earth. Find(a) the maximum height H and (b) the range that the ballwould attain on the moon.
acceleration=1.62 m/s^2

then it says look at example 6-8 in your book. I know what equation to use, but the question only gives me gravity.
