Maximum Height of a ball

  1. Oct 5, 2010 #1
    1. A ball is thrown with a velocity of 20m/s at an angle of 30 degrees and travels 3.0s before hitting the ground. What is the maximum height of the ball?

    2. I really am new to physics and have am not sure about the relevant equation. I do want to learn and don't want my work done for me so please point me in the right direction and explain a relevant equation.

    Draw a diagram and resolve the velocity vector into components, to start.
