 Question 35905: Please help. 3) Suppose you throw a baseball straight up at a velocity of 32 feet per second. A function can be created by expressing distance above the ground, s, as a function of time, t. This function is s = -16t2 + v0t + s0 • 16 represents ½g, the gravitational pull due to gravity (measured in feet per second 2). • v0 is the initial velocity (how hard do you throw the object, measured in feet per second). • s0 is the initial distance above ground (in feet). If you are standing on the ground, then s0 = 0. a) What is the function that describes this problem? Answer: b) The ball will be how high above the ground after 1 second? Answer: Show work in this space. c) How long will it take to hit the ground? Answer: Show work in this space. d) What is the maximum height of the ball? Answer: Show work in this space.
