Alright, another one I am messing up somehow(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

.2kg stone thrown vertically upward with initial vof 7.5 starting at 1.2 m.

Find potential energy at max height.

I use

v^2=v0^2+2a(y-y0)

solving for y:

y=-v0^2/2a+y0 = 7.5^2/(2*9.8) + 1.2 = 6.7 J

the answer is wrong
