**drwls**, Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at 1:03pmWith no air friction, it should rise to an altitude H such that

M g H = (1/2) M Vo^2

H = Vo^2/(2g) = 42.9 m

If it rises to only 7.70 m, 82.05% of the initial kinetic energy is lost due to air friction. That is a lot.

The average friction force is energy lost (in Joules) divided by 7.70 meters
