    velocity?

    Use a(t) = -32 feet per second squared as the acceleration due to gravity. A ball is thrown vertically upward from the ground with an initial velocity of 96 feet per second. How high will the ball go?

    You can use the equation of motion:

    v^2=u^2+2as

    Where:

    v=final velocity (0)
    u=initial velocity ( 96\text{fts}^{-1})
    a=acceleration ( -32\text{fts}^{-2})
    s=displacement (height)
