A ball of unknown mass is thrown straight up.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

*maximum height reached in 5.78 seconds

*acceleration due to gravity 9.8 m/s2

Calculate initial velocity in m/s

Would the initial velocity be 9.8 m/s2 x 5.78 s: 56.644 m/s?

Thats all the information given.
