We know that: $V_f^2 = V_0^2 +2ad$ Since the final velocity is 0, we know: $V_0^2+2ad=0$ We substitute g, the gravitational constant, for a and simplify: $2gd=V_0^2$ $d = V_0^2/2g$ $d = 122.5 m$ b-d) We now find the speed and altitude at given points in time. We know that the speed will be given by: $v = v_0+at$ $v_y = v_{0y}-gt$ We then find the altitude, given the equation given above: $V_f^2-V_0^2=2ad$ Using the answer obtained using the previous speed equation as the final speed, we find: $d = \frac{V_f^2-V_0^2}{-2g}$ We plug in the given values to solve for the answer.
