to do this youy use one of the equations for constant acceleration the acceleration in this case is that due to gravity which = 32 ft s-2 in this case we use -32 bacause it is acting against the motion of the rocket

use the formula v = u + at At maximum height the velocity v = 0 , a the acceleration = -32 , the initial velocity = 288 ft/sec and t is the required time solve for t

Is it 9?

so just plug those values into the formula

0 = 288 -32t 32t = 288 t = 9 seconds yes
