Store this value in % a variable called "max_height". % % knowns and constants g = 9.81; % this is the gravity constant and is in m/s^2 initSpeed = 87; % initial speed of ball i % calculations % formula to be used is 0 = initial speed + (-)gravity(time) peakTime = initSpeed ./ g; % other formula is max height = initial speed(time) - .5(gravity)(time)^2 max_height = initSpeed .* peakTime - .5 .* g .* peakTime .^ 2;...
