  1. recall that the height
    h(t) = 50 + 30t - 4.9t^2
    And as with all parabolas ax^2+bx+c, the vertex is at x = -b/2a

  2. ho = 50 m = ht. of tower.
    h1 = ht above the tower.
    h = ht. above gnd.

    V^2 = Vo^2 + 2g*h1 = 0,
    30^2 + (-19.6)*h1 = 0,
    h1 = 45.9 m.

    h = ho + h1 = 50 + 45.9 = __ m. above gnd.
