A stone is thrown vertically upwards with a velocity 40 m/s and is caught back. Taking g =10 m/s2 , calculate the maximum height reached by the stone. What is the net displacement and the total distance covered by the stone? EXPERTS PLEASE ANSWER IT ASAP!!!

u = 40 m/s
As the stone is thrown upward the acceleration due to gravity is to be taken negative.
g = - 10 m/s2
v2 - u2 = 2as
v2 - u2 =2gh
As the stone reaches the maximum height its final velocity v =0
Thus,
0 - (40)2 = 2× (-10) × h
- 1600 = -20 × h
h = 80 m
So, the maximum height to which the stone can reach is 80 m.

The total distance covered by the stone = 80 + 80 = 160 m
And as th stone comes back to its initial position the displacement of the stone = 0
