An arrow is shot from ground (height=0) at a speed of 46m/s and travels in an archy line and at the maximum height has a speed of 42m/s. Arrows mass is, m...what is the maximum height that the arrow reaches? **IGNORE ANY FRICTION**(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for any help guys

What I did was:

Et1=Mechanical energy before arrow was shot

Et2=Mechanical Energy after arrow was shot

Vf2=Final velocity squared

Vf1=Initial velocity squared

Et1=Et2

m(vf2)/2 - m(vi2)/2 = mgh + m(vf2)/2 - m(vi2)/2

...it doesnt work out though...why???
