**drwls**, Friday, March 11, 2011 at 12:46pmSet the initial kinetic energy equal to the potential energy change at the highest elevation, and solve for that elevation.

(1/2)mV^2 = GMm/R - GMm/(R + h)

Solve for the height h. m cancels out

M is the mass of the earth, G is the universal gravity constant and R is the earth's radius.
