An arrow is shot upward on a planet. Its height (in meters) after t seconds is given by h(t) = 60t – 0.6t^2.
a. At what time will the arrow reach the top?
b. With what velocity will the arrow hit the ground?

As h(t) = 1500 - .6(50 - t)², its maximum value occurs when t = 50.

When the arrow hits the ground, it will have a velocity that is directed downward and has magnitude 60 meters per second.
