A 0.20 kg ball is thrown straight up into the air with an initial speed of 19 m/s. Find the momentum of the ball at the following locations.

(a) at its maximum height

(b) halfway to its maximum height

Variable:

ball = .2kg

Vi = 19 m/s

2. Relevant equations

p = mv

3. The attempt at a solution

a) since the object is at max height the velocity is 0. therefore momentum is also 0.

b)This is where I ger lost...

I tried using the equation for momentum but I am not sure on how to solve for velocity.

My teacher said something about height being = to v^2 but he said this quickly and not sure what the usefulness of that is...

It would be greatly appreciated if I could get help ASAP
