Could someone please try and help me figure out this problem? I keep getting very large numbers and I do not think it is correct! Thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A stone is thrown with an initial velocity of 20 m/s straight upward from the edge of a cliff 100m above a canyon floor. The stone just misses the eliff's edge on its way down.

1.) determine the time required for the stone to reach its maximum height.

2.) determine the maximum height of the stone above the edge of the cliff.

3.) how much time elapses as the stone falls from its maximum height to the level from which it was thrown?

4.) what is the velocity of the stone upon returning to the level from which it was thrown?

5.) Determine the velocity of the stone 6 seconds after it is thrown.

6.) determine the position of the stone 6 seconds after it is thrown.

Sorry its long, but pelase help!
