 Question 327281: Could you please help me solve this equation: S= -16t^2 + v*t + k Using the height of 313,2 meters from the eiffel tower if a child was throwing a ball off of the eiffel tower. When a ball is thrown up into the air, it makes the shape of a parabola. The equation S= -16t^2 + v*t + k gives the height of the ball at any time, t in seconds, where “v” is the initial velocity (speed) in ft/sec and “k” is the initial height in feet (as if you were on top of a tower or building). Make up a scenario where a ball is thrown, shot, etc. into the air. You can choose any initial velocity (in feet/sec) and any initial height (in feet) of the ball, but include them in your written scenario. The ball can leave your hand, the top of a building, etc. so you can use many different values for the initial height. Click here to see answer by solver91311(16868)
