A 0.250 kg ball is thrown straight upward with an initial velocity of 38 m/s. If air friction is ignored, calculate the:
(a) height of the ball when its speed is 12 m/s
(b) height to which the ball rises before falling
(c) How would your answers to (a) and (b) change if
you repeated the exercise with a ball twice as
massive?

Use energy considerations:
a) 1/2 m vi^2=1/2 mg vf^2+mg*hfinal
b) same equation, vf=0
c) divide the equation in a) by m, and see how the mass then affects that equation.
