I can't figure out if I set this problem up correctly. Any help?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The muzzle speed of a 22-caliber bullet fired from a rifle is 360 m/s. If there were no air resistance, how high would this bullet rise when fired straight up?

v^2=intial v^2+2ay

y=v^2-initial v^2/2a=(0-(360 m/s)^2)/2(-9.80 m/s^2)=6,612 m

The maximum height reached is 6,612 m.
