Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a )\[v _{f}^2=v _{i}^2+2a \Delta y\] It is going up so acceleration is negative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Whatever 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0c.) 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
