  1. Since we don't care about the horizontal motion, just ignore it. The initial vertical velocity

    v0 = 49 sin30 = 49 * 1/2 = 24.5

    Now, at any time later

    v = v0 - at
    s = 0 + v0*t - 1/2 a*t^2
    = 24.5t - 4.9t^2
    = 4.9t(5-t)

    So, the arrow is at height=0 at time t=0 and t=5. Therefore, it is at max height when t=2.5

    s(2.5) = 24.5*2.5 - 4.9*(2.5)^2 = 30.625 m
