    If a ball is thrown into the air with a velocity of 40ft/s, its height in feet after "t" seconds is given by y = 40t-16t^2.
    a) Find the average velocity for the time period beginning when t=2 and lasting

    (i) 0.5 seconds
    (ii) 0.1 second
    (iii) 0.05 seconds
    (iv) 0.01 second

    b) Find the instantaneous velocity when t=2.

    a) Find the average velocity for the time period beginning when t=2 and lasting

    y = 40t-16t^2.
    y at t= 2 is 16

    (i) 0.5 seconds

    y at t= 2.5 is 0
