A catapult launches a boulder with an upward velocity of 92 ft/s. The height of the boulder, h, in feet after t seconds is given by the function h=-16t^2+92t+30. How long Does it take the boulder to reach it’s maximum height? What is the boulders maximum height

  1. the max height is on the axis of symmetry of the parabola

    tmax = -b / (2 a) = -92 / (2 * -16)

    find tmax , then substitute into the original equation to find hmax

  2. a. Y = yo+g*Tr = 0.
    92 + (-32)Tr = 0
    Tr = 2.9 s. = Rise time (time to reach max. ht.).

    b. Y^2 = yo^2+2g*h = 0.
    92^2+(-64)h = 0
    h = 132 Ft. above launching point.
    ho+h = 30+132 = 162 Ft. above gnd. = h max.
