A football is kicked into the air vertically upwards. What is its velocity at the highest point?

###### Advertisements

#### Solution

When the football reaches its highest point it is momentarily at rest. At that moment its velocity will be zero as it is continuously retarded by the acceleration due to gravity (g).
