Homework Help: Gravity effect on object

  1. Nov 7, 2006 #1
    An item is thrown upwards with a vertical velocity of 50 m/s, what is it's greatest height and how long is it in the air for.

    I have no clue how to do that.

    How have you approached similar questions in the past? I can't imagine that your teacher would have given you a question without giving you the tools to solve it.
