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

A particle moves along the y-axis so that its velocityvat timetis v(t)=1-(1/tan(e^t))

Find the timetgreater than or equal to zero at which the particle reaches its highest point.

3. The attempt at a solution

I set the equation equal to zero and got t=-.242 which doesn't work so I graphed it on a calculator to see what's going on. The graph ended up being a crazy graph with many, many zeros and I have no idea where to go from here.
