A body is projected vertically upwards with a velocity of m/s
from a top of a tower whose height is m.
Find the maximum height that the body can reach measured from the ground level, given that the gravitational acceleration .
Draw a diagram to ensure correct positive and negative signs.
The question asks for the maximum height of the body, at the maximum height velocity will be zero.
List the values from the question.
Adding , the height above the point of projection to 69 gives the height above ground level.
Substitute the values in the following formula:
