An object is thrown vertically upward such that it has a speed of 58 m/s when it reaches two thirds of it's maximum height above the launch point.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2

Find the maximum height h. Answer in units of m.

I know:

V: 58 m/s at y=2/3 H

H = ?

V = 0

V^2-Vo^2 = 2g(1/3H)

I know I need to plug in the numbers, but how do I get all of the equation to one side, to find H??
