# Easy question about force on an object [closed]

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!

Hi Raj... And welcome to Physics.SE. As for our concern, these questions are too localized as we don't support maximum What is X? questions. Your question may probably get closed due to this. Search an answer on Wikipedia and if you have any misconceptions, we're here to give answer..! (Moderators would probably get angry with me) – Ϛѓăʑɏ βµԂԃϔ Sep 15 '12 at 14:34
Raj, the question you should be asking yourself is "why do I not have a clue where to start?". The answer must be that you've not begun at the beginning. You must make some effort to start. Check out any introductory general physics textbook at a library or borrow one from a friend. Or do the equivalent on the internet. When asking a physics questions here, you're expected to have, at least, a basic knowledge of the foundations of physics. But, frankly, if you had this, you'd have a clue where to start! – Alfred Centauri Sep 15 '12 at 22:20
