a soccer player kicks a stationary ball giving it a speed of 20m/s at an angle of 15degrees to the horizontal. what is the maximum height reached by the ball?

figure the vertical component of the intial speed.
at the max height, vertical velocity is zero.
vf=0=Vi+gt where g is 9.8 find t to the highest point, then
hf=Vi*t+1/2 gt^2 
1.5
