Using a Parabola: Maximum Height Reached by a Soccer Ball

If a soccer ball is kicked straight up from the ground with an initial velocity of 32 feet per second, then its height above the earth in feet is given by s(t) = -16t^2 + 32t where t is time in seconds. Graph this parabola for 0 < or equal to t < or equal to 2. What is the maximum height reached by the ball?


Determine whether the graph of each parabola opens upward or downward. y= -1/2x^2+3


1. State the key features (vertex, focus, directrix, direction of opening, and axis of symmetry) of each parabola, and sketch the graph. a) ysquared-2x+4y-7=0 2. Find the equation of each parabola. a) parabola with focus (-2,-1) and directrix y=5 b) ysquared=-6x translated according to ((x,y)arrow(x-2, y+4)

Graph: How to Graph Appropriately

Question Please select all the situations below that are POSSIBLE and do not mark those that are IMPOSSIBLE. Each list of numbers is a degree list (list of the degrees of all the vertices) of a graph. If there are extra restrictions - the graph is simple, or a tree, etc - it will be noted in the question. a. Graph, degre

Problem set

Question 1 Consider the functions f(x) = x^2 and g(x) = square root of x, both with domain and co-domain R+, the set of positive real numbers. Are f and g inverse functions? Give a brief reason. Question 2 Given the Hamming distance function f: A X A -> Z defined on pairs of 8-bit strings, (where A is the set o

Measurable Functions

Show that a function f is measurable IF AND ONLY IF there exists a sequence (f_m) of set functions such that f(x)=lim f_m(x) for almost all x. Please make sure to show the proof in both directions.

Graphing, Domain and Range

Given the table below, graph the function, identify the graph of the function (line, parabola, hyperbola, or exponential), explain your choice, and give the domain and range as shown in the graph, and also the domain and range of the entire function. x -2 -1 0 1 2 y .111 .333 1 3 9 See attachment

Value of function at a given point

1. The number of 4-year college, public and private, in the period 1980-1996 can be modeled by f(x)=0.0003x^3 - 0.007x^2+0.058x+1.957 0 less than or equal to X less then or equal to 16 Where X is the number of years since 1980 and f(x) is the number of 4-year colleges measured in thousands. Determine the average number
