A ball thrown vertically upward is caught by the thrower after 2 seconds. Find the initial velocity of the ball and the maximum height the ball reaches???!!

• physics -

so it took 1 second to get to the top.

Consider it coming down...

vf=-gt so it looks like at one second it is going 9.8m/s
h=1/2 g t^2
