An egg is thrown nearly vertically upward from a point near the cornice of a tall building. It just misses the cornice on the way down and passes a point a distance 48.0 m below its starting point at a time 5.00s after it leaves the thrower's hand. Air resistance may be ignored.

part A:

What is the initial speed of the egg?

v= m/s

part B:

How high does it rise above its starting point?

h= m

part C:

What is the magnitude of its velocity at the highest point?

v= m/s

part D:

What is the magnitude of its acceleration at the highest point?

a= m/s2

part E:

What is the direction of its acceleration at the highest point?

up or down
