A toy rocket is launched straight up into the air with an initial velocity of 60 ft/s from a table 3 ft above the ground. If acceleration due to gravity is –16 ft/s2, approximately how many seconds after the launch will the toy rocket reach the ground? ~h(t) = at2 + vt + h0 A.0.05 s B.2.03 s C.3.80 s D.3.70 s

    your actual job is to solve \[-16t^2+60t+3=0\] that is all

    saying `acceleration due to gravity is –16 ft/s2` is false the acceleration due to gravity is actually 32 ft/s^2

    but the equation -16t^2 + 60t + 3 = 0 is correct
