initial velocity of 32 feet per second. The height of the wrench above the ground after t seconds is given

by S(t)= -16t^2 - 32t + 128.

a) What is the height of the wrench after 1 second?

b) How long does it take for the wrench to reach the ground?

b) solve

-16t^2 - 32t + 128 = 0

or , after dividing all terms by -16,

t^2 + 2t - 8 = 0
