    a )\[v _{f}^2=v _{i}^2+2a \Delta y\] It is going up so acceleration is negative.

    Whatever you get for the displacement of y, use it for b. b) \[v _{f}^2=v _{i}^2+2a _{y}\Delta y\] \[\Delta y \] would be negative since it is going down. vi would zero since it is 0m/s at the top.

    c.) Use \[v _{f}=v _{i}+a _{y} t\] both times and add it up. To find first t, let vi=500m/s and vf=0m/s To find second t, let vf= the value you got for b and vi=0m/s

    or use \[x _{f}=x _{i}+v _{i}t+\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }at^2\]

    You add the time when it goes up and when it goes down.
