## Homework Statement

The velocity at the midway point of a ball able to reach a height y when thrown with a velocity v

_{0}at the origin is:

## Homework Equations

v

^{2}=v

_{0}

^{2}+2ay

## The Attempt at a Solution

I made y = 1/2 y and the simplified the equation to v=sqrt(v

_{0}

^{2}+ay)

But that is wrong because the answer is sqrt(v

_{0}

^{2}/2)

Why?
