# Application of antiderivatives

Not what you're looking for?

A rocket lifts off the surface of the earth with a constant acceleration of 20 m/sec.sq. How fast will the rocket be going 1 minute later?

What I did: a=20 m/sec.sq. v=20t+C m/sec,
1 min. = 60 sec.
Initial conditions: v=0 when t=0 At t=0, C=0
Speed = |v|=20(60)+0, or 1200 m/sec.

Question: Is this correct, or am I leaving something out?

##### Solution Summary

An application of antiderivatives are examined. Constant acceleration of the surface of the Earth is determined.

Now I have to figure out how to explain cost of capital is used in net present value analysis, and how cost of capital is used in net present value analysis. This stuff gets confusing."
