NASA launches a rocket at \( t = 0 \) seconds, Its height, in meters above sea-level, as a function is given by \( h ( t ) = - 4.9 t ^ { 2 } + 358 t + 122 \) . 

Assuming that the rocket will splash down into the ocean, at what time does splashdown occ 

The rocket splashes down after _____ seconds, 

How high above sea-level does the rocket get at its peak? 

The rocket peaks at meters above sea-level, 

Answer

\(h(t) = at^2+ bt+ c\\a= -4.9\\b= 358\\c= 122\)

1.    h(t)=0

       t=73.40 seconds

2.    6660.98 meters,when t =\(- \frac{b}{2a}= \frac{358}{- 2\times(- 4.9)}\)
