Momentum at Maximum height

  1. Nov 14, 2007 #1
    Hey guys, I'm new to this website and I don't really know how it works, but if somebody can help me with this problem it would be greatly appreciated.

    A 0.11 kg ball of dough is thrown straight up into the air with an initial speed of 11 m/s. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2. What is the momentum at the maximum height?

    What is the relationship between momentum and velocity, and what happens to velocity at a maximum height?

    I guess it's just 0 becuase it's at the top so the velocity is zero
