Homework Help: Linear Motion Question: Ball thrown in the air

  1. Nov 8, 2015 #1
    A ball is thrown upwards from a building of height 2x with an initial velocity of v1. The velocity when it hits the ground is -v2. What is the height of the ball when it is at maximum speed?

    Since it is at its max speed when it hits the ground, would the answer just be 0x?

    You should be using the homework template, but yes, you are right. This is a ridiculously stated problem. Are you sure you copied it over correctly?
