    A rock is dropped from a tower on the Brooklyn Bridge, 276 feet above the east river. Let t represent the time in seconds.

    a.) write a model for the position of the function (assume air resistance is negligible.)

    b.) find the average velocity during the first 2 seconds.

    c.) find the instantious velocity when t=2 and t=3

    d.) how long will it take before the rock hits the water ?

    e.) when it hits the water, what is the rock's speed?

    Find the marginal profit function
    P= -0.0002x^3 + 6x^2 - x - 2000
