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?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com May 24, 2023, 12:47 pm ad1c9bdddf
