About how high is the diver above water? how do i solve with h(t)==4.9t^2+h?Answer by Earlsdon(6287)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The function is: which allows you to calculate the height (in meters) of of an object dropped from an initial height of as a function of time (t in secods). When the object (pebble) reaches the ground, h = 0, so substitute this and t = 3 into the equation and solve for the corresponding value of . meters.
