Solve the following :


A ball is projected vertically upward with a speed of $50 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$ Find

(a) The maximum height

(b) The time to reach the maximum height

(c) The speed at half the maximum height. Take $\mathrm{g}=10 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}^{2}$


$\mathrm{u}=50 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s} ; \mathrm{v}=0 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s} ; \mathrm{a}=-\mathrm{g}$

(a) $\mathrm{v}^{2}=\mathrm{u}^{2}+2 \mathrm{as}$

$0^{2}=(50)^{2}+2(\mathrm{~g}) \mathrm{s}$

$\mathrm{s}=125 \mathrm{~m}$

(b) $v=u+a t$


$\mathrm{t}=5 \mathrm{sec}$

(c) Speed at s= ${ }^{\frac{125}{2}}=62.5 \mathrm{~m} ; \mathrm{u}=50 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s} ; \mathrm{a}=-\mathrm{g}$

$\mathrm{v}^{2}=\mathrm{u}^{2}+2 \mathrm{as}$


$\mathrm{v} \approx 35 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$
