Abstract: The method of Walker and Wood is used to completely determine the nilpotence height of the elements $\mbox{$P_t^s$}$ in the Steenrod algebra at the prime 2. In particular, it is shown that $(\mbox{$P_t^s$})^{2\lfloor s/t \rfloor+2}=0$ for all $s\ge 0$, $t\ge 1$. In addition, several interesting relations in $A$ are developed in order to carry out the proof.
