A rocket is fired upward from earth with initial velocity v measured in m/s. Then maximum height in m is reached by the rocket is given by the function h(v)=Rv^2/2gR-v^2

Radius is 6.4(10^6)m and acceleration due to gravity g is 9.8m/s^2 (R and g are constants and v is the independent variable. Graph the function denoting all intercepts, asymptotes, and other points of interest.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solutionI used the escape velocity concept. I then plugged in the numbers given into the function. h(v)=6.4(10^6)(11100)^2/2(9.8)^2(6.4)(10^6)-(11100)^2

Im not sure if this is correct and how to graph with the correct axes.
