Can you use V^2 = Vo^2 + 2a*distance and set V^2 = 0?

One method to solve this is conservation of energy.

initial kinetic energy = final potential energy

let m = mass of stone

let g = acceleration of gravity

let v = initial velocity

let h = maximum height

(1/2)mv^2 = mgh

So,

v^2 = 2gh

h = (v^2)/g

final velocity squared = initial velocity squared + 2(acceleration)(displacement)

0 = (15*15) + 2(9.8)x

0 = 225 + 19.6x

-225 = 19.6x

x= 11m
