When a football in a field goal attemp reaches its max height how does its speed compare to its inital speed?
a)it's zero
b) it is less than its inital speed
c)it is equal to its inital speed
d)it is greater than its inital speed
since at the max height v=0 isn't the answer a)?

The vertical velocity is zero at max height, but the horizontal component is constant (neglecting air resistance).
