A 0.0309-kilogram ball is stuffed into a spring gun and shot up into the air at some angle. The gun's spring has a force constant of 92.5 N/m and is initially compressed 0.138 m. When the ball reaches maximum height, it has a horizontal velocity with a speed of 2.23 m/s. How high above its initial location in the gun does the ball soar?
