Flight of a Rocket Suppose a rocket is fired upward from the surface of the earth with an initial velocity # (measured in m/s). Then the maximum height h (in meters) reached by the rocket is given by the function Ru? h(v) = 2qR - where R = 6.4 X 10° m is the radius of the earth and 4 = 9.8 m/s? is the acceleration due to gravity. Use a graph. ing device to draw a graph of the function h. (Note that h and o must both be positive, so the viewing rectangle need not contain negative values.) What does the vertical asymptote represent physically?
Consider the polynomial function
