An object is projected vertically upward with an initial velocity of v0 ft/sec, and its distance s(t) in feet above the ground after t seconds is given by....

the formula s(t) = −16t2 + v0t.
(a) If the object hits the ground after 12 seconds, find its initial velocity v0.
v0 =        ft/sec

(b) Find its maximum distance above the ground.
s(t) =        ft
I am unsure how to approach this problem. I feel as if some information is missing or am I just lacking some generic knowledge used in the formula for velocity?
