when the object reaches maximum height, the velocity of the object is 0 m/s.

It reaches maximum height when the gravity of the body has slowed its velocity to 0 m/s. If there is no gravity and there is no external force acting on it then it will never reach a maximum height as there wont be a negativeaccelerationdemonstrated by newtons first law.

Where there is and you have the objects initial velocity then you can use :

v^2 = u^2+2.a.s

v = Velocity when it reaches Max. height so v = 0
u = Initial Velocity (m/s)
a = Retardation/ Negative Acceleration due to gravity, -9.80m/s ^2

And then the unknown (s) is the displacement, or height above ground, and if everything else is in the right format it should be in metres.

### What relationship exists between the initial velocity and the maximum height reached by an object thrown upward?

Ignoring air resistance, I get this formula:Maximum height of a vertically-launched object = 1.5 square of initial speed/GI could be wrong. In that case, the unused portion of my fee will be cheerfully refunded.

### Is acceleration greater when the object is thrown vertically or horizontally?

Acceleration is dependent on the initial velocity of how fast the object is leaving the projectile. The vertical acceleration is greater when the object is falling than when the object reaches the peak in height. However, if the object is thrown horizontally and there is no parabola in its shape then there is not as great of an acceleration.

### The velocity of a body thrown vertically upward is reduced into half in one secondwhat is the maximum height attained by it?

velocity is found by dividing the distance with time. In a second the height traveled is found by multiplying the velocity by the time taken and then dividing the answer by two.

### How do you answer this physics question?

A ball is thrown vertically upward with an initial speed of 20m/s. Two second later, a stone is thrown vertically (from the same initial height as the ball) with an initial speed of 24m/s. At what height above the release point will the ball and stone pass each other?

### What is tje velocity of a ball thrown upward at 16 ft/sec?

If a ball is thrown vertically upward with a velocity of 160 ft/s, then its height after t seconds is s = 160t - 16t^2. If a ball is thrown vertically upward with a velocity of 160 ft/s, then its height after t seconds is s = 160t &acirc;&circ;&rsquo; 16t^2.

### How can a ball be thrown that it reaches the longest distance across vertically horizontally angled?

if the bal is thrown by making 45 degree angles. with the ground..it will travel maximum distance...

### How can a ball thrown vertically have the same time flight as a ball thrown at an angle when they have the same maximum height?

They might seem like they have the same flight patterns, but they don't. A 12-6 curveball thrown by an over-hander will go from 12 to 6, but if the same is thrown by a 3/4 or side-armer, the ball will react a little more like a slider.

### A ball is thrown vertically upwards with velocity of 19.6ms what is the maximum height to which it will reach?

apply the formula: v2 - u2 = 2as. Here v= 0; u = 19.6m/s; a = -g ,find s and that's max. heigth
