Maximum altitude of a rocket if launched vertically
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The missile has maximum horizontal range of 160km. What is the maximum altitude it can reach if launched vertically?
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
v=0 (because the velocity is zero when it is not rising anymore)
a= -9.8 (up is the positive direction
s= the answer, the height
That is how I thought I am supposed to do it...
By the way you guys do a great job on these forums, I lurk here a lot :)

Also are you sure initial velocity, u, should be zero?

apply the formula for calculating the maximum range. From there u will get the Velocity of the projectile.
