Answer to Question #1416 in Mechanics | Relativity for Krystyna

Question #1416
A watermelon cannon fires a watermelon vertically up into the air at a velocity of +11.0 m/s, starting from an initial position 1.20 meters above the ground. When the watermelon reaches the peak of its flight, what is its height above the ground?
Expert's answer
According to the equations of the motion
V=V0-gt;
H = H0 + V0t - gt2/2
At the peak of the flight V = 0, so

V0 = gt
t = V0/g
Thus
H = H0 + V02/g - V02/2g = H0 + V02/2g = 1.2 + 112/(2*10) = 7.25 m
