A model rocket is launched straight upward; its altitude as a function of time is given by y = bt-ct^2, where b=68 m/s, c=4.9 m/s, t is the time in seconds, and y is in meters.

(a) Use differentiation to find a general expression for the rocket's velocity as a function of time.

(b) When is the rockets velocity zero?
