Solving projectile problems with quadratic equations.
A projectile is launched from a tower into the air with an initial velocity of 48 feet per second. Its height, h, in feet, above the ground is modeled by the function
h = -16t2 + v0t + 64
where t is the time, in seconds, since the projectile was launched and v0 is the initial velocity.
How long was the projectile in the air?
When did it reach its maximum height?
