What is the value of b? Answer by nerdybill(7375)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The height of an acorn falling out of a tree is given by h=-16t squared+b. If an acorn takes 1 second to fall to the ground. What is the value of b? . If it hits the ground h = 0 and they give you that t = 1 . plug it all into: h = -16t^2+b 0 = -16(1)^2+b 0 = -16(1)+b 0 = -16+b 16 = b
