If the mass is 4.3 kg, the initial speed is 4.0 m/s, and the initial height is 8.4 m, find the speed of the ball when it is at a height of 8.0 m.

Please and Thank You for the help.

    I assume it is going straight up.

    v = 4 - 9.8 t

    8 = 8.4 + 4 t - 4.9 t^2

    you can solve the soecond for t with quadratic equation (take the positive t) and then use the first equation to find v
    However it is easier to use energy
    (1/2)m v^2 + m g h = constant
    cancel m It does not matter, rock same as feather here.
    (1/2)(4^2) + 9.8(8.4) = (1/2)v^2 + 9.8(8)

    In what direction is it launched? Straight down? It makes a dofference. The mass will not matter.

    You may have omitted part of the question.

    I do not think it matters in the end if straight up or straight down, but at some intermediate angle is no good.
