 Question 24543: suppose you throw a basebal straight up at a velocity of 64 ft per second.A funtion can be created by expressing distance above the ground, s , as a function of time, t. this function is (< 16 represents 1/2 g,gravitational pull in ft per second^2. v0is the inital velocity in ft per second so is intial distance above ground in ft. if you are stading on the ground , then s0= zero. what is the function descibing this problem? how high above the ground will the ball be after one sec? how long will it take to hit the ground? what is the maximum height and time attained by the ball?
