Jules kicks a soccer ball off the ground and into the air with an initial velocity of 25 feet per second. Assume the starting height of the ball is 0 feet. Approximately what maximum height does the soccer ball reach?

Assuming that Jules kicks the ball completely vertically, then you can use one of the famous kinematics equations (I'll spare you the derivation here): (v-final)^2 - (v-initial)^2 = 2*a*height In your case, the ball's final velocity (at its maximum height) is zero! Your acceleration is -g = -32 feet per second per second, and your initial velocity is 25 feet per second. So you have: height = - (25)^2 / (2*-32) = 625 / 64 = 9.77 feet Hope that helps!
