A ball thrown upward satisfy the equation s=160 t - 20 t^2, where S is in m (meter) and t is in sec. what is the maximum height achieved by the ball ? (a) 80 (b) 160 (c) 240 (d) 320 According to me.. Here s=height reached by the ball. t=time taken by ... height the stone will have a velocity of zero (since it will stop at the highest point). So, v=0 than can anyone tell me where I am wrong ?
