 Question 113899: Hi I am having great difficulty trying to solve the following:- I have tried puting the equation for the first part of the problem into my TI-83 graphing calculator..but I cannot find a proper solution .. in fact I have tried all I can think of, this problem is causing me to fall behind with my work. I have seen many examples of how to solve the problem for a rocket ..the fact that this is a two stage rocket..is causing me to not be able to solve it I have spent ages trying to work out the way to program my TI-83 calculator to solve the following... I would appreciate guidance or direction to a site that can show me how to solve the following;- the motion of two stage rocket is stated by it height y in metres above the ground since t seconds since launch. Flies vertically Ist stage burns for 5 seconds and cuts out. 2nd stage rocket is under gravity alone. modelled by the equations Stage 1 height y = 10t2 time 0< t <5 stage 2 height y = - 5t2 + 150t - 375 time t >5 Question asks you plot function on ti 83, using an appropriate window for time(s) hence sketch a position time graph for each stage of flight adding labels etc.. also ask you to plot use the n deriv function to plot rate of change of function. If I can find the basic means of plotting graph I should be able to answer the question but cannot find anything in manual that is similar to solving a question of this type.
