A basketball player shoots a free throw from the foul line. The equation of the path it will travel is h = -4.9t2 + 18t + 1.2 which gives the approximate height, h, of the basketball in meters after t seconds.  When does the ball reach its maximum height?

h = -4.9t^2 + 18t + 1.2

 

Time to  max  ht =     -18  /  ( 2 * -4.9)    ≈   1.837   sec
