h(t) = -4t^2 + 32t, this is the eq of parabola whose coefficients are, a=-4, b=32,c=0 when h=0=-4t^2 + 32t solving for t gives...t=8 sec and t=0 the rocket was in the AIR at t=0, the rocket hit the ground at t=8sec the Velocity V=2ax+b= 2(-4)t+32=-8t+32, its max height reach when V=0=-8t+32, that is t=32/8=4sec max h=-4(4)^2 +32=-32meters
