    Thats what it looks like.. but im taking chem. in college and have never had a physics course, im really lost.

    My physics is quite rusty but I believe that would be
    V^2 = Vo^2 + 2ax
    V^2 will be zero at the top since eventually the pull of gravity will stop the balls upward flight.
    0 = (40 m/s)^2 + 2*(-9.8)*x
    Solve for x = distance in meters.
