An object is launched at 19.6 meters per second from a 58.8 meter tall platform. The equation for the object's height s at time t seconds after launch is s(t) = -4.9t2+ 19.6t + 58.8, where s is in meters.
a. When does the object strike the ground?
b. What was its maximum height?
c. How long will it take to reach its maximum height?
