A man can throw a ball a maximum horizontal distance of 136 m on a level field. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. How far can he throw the same ball vertically upward from the ground? (Assume that the ball is thrown from the ground and that his muscles give the ball the same speed in each case.) Answer in units of m.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My work: I was trying to use the range equation to solve for vi so 136=v^2sin(2theta)/g ok so 136x9.8= 1332.8=v^2sin(2theta) , im obviously missing something what is it? thanks
