I can do it with mechanics, but I have to solve it with calculus as it's for the calculus module.

Can you just give me the starting point. Where do I begin? What's the equation I have to differentiate?

This question is expected to be solved using calculus. I think it might be a maximum problem: A stone is thrown vertically upward and after t seconds its height y meters above its starting point is given by y=100t-5t^2. Calculate the greatest height reached by the stone, and the value of t when this...
