If the mass is 4.3 kg, the initial speed is 4.0 m/s, and the initial height is 8.4 m, find the speed of the ball when it is at a height of 8.0 m.
Please and Thank You for the help.

I assume it is going straight up.
v = 4  9.8 t
8 = 8.4 + 4 t  4.9 t^2
you can solve the soecond for t with quadratic equation (take the positive t) and then use the first equation to find v
However it is easier to use energy
(1/2)m v^2 + m g h = constant
cancel m It does not matter, rock same as feather here.
(1/2)(4^2) + 9.8(8.4) = (1/2)v^2 + 9.8(8) 
In what direction is it launched? Straight down? It makes a dofference. The mass will not matter.
You may have omitted part of the question. 
I do not think it matters in the end if straight up or straight down, but at some intermediate angle is no good.
