8.) A member of the local rocketry club launches her latest rocket from a large field. At the moment its fuel is exhausted, the rocket has a velocity of 240 ft/sec and an altitude of 544 ft (t is in seconds) : Use the projectile function to create your equation

h(t) = −16t^2+ vt + k , v is velocity and k is your initial height.

a.) Write the function that models the height of the rocket after fuel is exhausted.

b.) How high is the rocket at t=0?

c.) How high the rocket is 5 seconds after fuel is exhausted?

d.) What is the maximum height attained by the rocket?

e.) How many seconds was the rocket airborne after its fuel was exhausted (how long till it hits the ground)? Round to the nearest hundredth of a second.
