Question

# Flight of a projectile. An object is projected vertically upward with an initial velocity of $v_0 \mathrm{ft} / \mathrm{sec}$, and its distance $s(t)$ in feet above the ground after $t$ seconds is given by the formula $s(t)=-16 t^2+v_0 t$. If the object hits the ground after $12$ seconds, find its initial velocity $v_0$.

Solution
