(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

With what initial velocity must an object be thrown upward (from ground level) to reach a maximum height of 550feet.

Use a(t)= -32ft/sec^{2}as the acceleration due to gravity. (neglect air resistance)

2. Relevant equations

Use integration

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that U should first start off by integrating the acceleration in order to get velocity, but I wind up getting:

32x+C= v(t)

I'm not sure how to deal wit the problem from here, does anyone have any suggestions?
