# Suppose that on earth you can throw a ball vertically upward a distance of 2.00 m. Given that the acceleration of gravity on the Moon is 1.67 m/s2, how high could you throw a ball on the Moon? (Take the y-axis in the vertical direction, and assume that the location of your hand is at y = 0.)

First, we must find the initial velocity that the ball must have on earth, to reach the height of 2 m. The height is calculated using the following equation:

H(earth) = (v^2 – v0^2)/-2g (earth)

v   →  is the velocity for each instant.

v0  →  is the initial velocity of the ball.

g(earth)  →  is...
