Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Carden on Monday, March 29, 2010 at 8:03pm.

A 0.26 kg rock is thrown vertically upward from the top of a cliff that is 27 m high. When it hits the ground at the base of the cliff the rock has a speed of 24 m/s.

(a) Assuming that air resistance can be ignored, find the initial speed of the rock.

(b) Find the greatest height of the rock as measured from the base of the cliff.

I know I have to use projectile motion somehow. I don't know how to without knowing the initial velocity. I can't find that without solving the first part. I'm having trouble picking an equation. Please help.
