Please excuse me if this is a basic question, but it has been festering in my head for quite some time. Suppose you have an object of mass m. We apply a force with magnitude f on the obeject directly upwards (meaning the force makes a 90 degree angle with the horizontal axis). Describe the motion of this object. I.e, how high does it go, how long does it travel for, what's its highest point, etc. I realize this is probably very basic but I have no clue where to start. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
