what is her maximum height how long after she leaves trampoline does she reach max height how long is she in air how high off the ground is trampoline a trampoline artist bounces on a trampoline her height above the ground is modelled by the function h=-4.9(t-1)²+6.3 "h" measures the height above the ground in meters and "t" measures the time after she leaves the trampoline in seconds. corresponding question above.

The maximum height of the artist is found when the parabola is at its vertex.  Since the function `h=-4.9(t-1)^2+6.3` is already in vertex form, the maximum height is when the quadratic portion is zero.  That is when `t-1=0` which is the same as when t=1.

At t=1, the maximum height is `h=-4.9(0)^2+6.3 = 6.3` metres.
