Thank You!Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! word problem: A cat leaps into the air with an initial velocity of 8 feet per second to grab a string, and then falls back to the floor. How long does the cat remain in the air? --------------------- it's not 16^2 v = 8 ft/sec, s = 0 ---------- Solve for h(t) = 0 One t is the time the cat jumps, the other is the time it returns to ground level. ------------ t = 0, t = 2 The cat is off the ground for 2 seconds.
