A jumping bean jumps vertically upward from the edge of a table. It has a speed of 10 m/s when it reaches half of its maximum height.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a. How high does it rise?

b. What is its velocity and acceleration 1 second after it jumps?

c. 3 seconds after?

d. What is its average velocity during the first half second?

Okay so I'm a big noob. I think the acceleration is 9.8 m/sec^2 due to gravity. I think I can add 9.8 m for every second it rises but I'm not sure. Any help at all with this problem is greatly appreciated.
