If a rock is thrown upward with an initial velocity of 32 feet per second from the top of a 40-foot building, write the height equation. The formula is s = -16t^2 + v o t + s o.

Solution Preview

We can go through the physics to derive the equation.
Assume the upward direction is positive, then the ...

Solution Summary

This shows how to write a height equation given velocity.

The maximum velocity of a roller coaster depends on the vertical drop from the top of the highest hill to the bottom of that hill. The formula: (see attached), gives the relationship between maximum velocity, V(h) in feet per second, andheight, h in feet.
1. Identity the independent variable, dependent variable.(Must use the

A circus acrobat of mass M leaps straight up with initial velocity v(initial) from a trampoline. As he rises up, he takes a trained monkey of mass m off a perch at a height "h" above the trampoline. What is the maximum height attained by the pair?

An arrow is shot with a velocity of 45 m/s at an angle 50 degrees with the horizontal.What is the height of the arrow at a point 150 meters down range?
I think I know how to get the TOTAL distance: 45sin(50)(3.52)-.5x9.8x3.52=203.6M BUT NOT THE HEIGHT.

Suppose you throw a baseball straight up at a velocity of 64 feet per second. A function can be created by expressing distance above the ground, s, as a function of time, t. This function is s = -16t2 + v0t + s0
· 16 represents 1/2g, the gravitational pull due to gravity (measured in feet per second2).
· v0 is the initial

A dare devil decide to jump a canyon. Its walls are equally high and 10m apart. He takes off by driving a motor cycle up a short ramp sloped at an angle of 15 degrees. What minimum speed must he have in order to clear the canyon.

I need to determine how fast a shadow is moving up a wall. Given the heigth of the wall the height if the object that cast the shadow. The length of the wire the object moves on, and the height of the light that casts the shadow. I have worked out the
first sections in an Excel 2000 spreadsheet but I need a push in the right di

A construction worker on a new high-rise building drops a wrench and it falls 78.4 m to the ground. How fast is it moving when it hits, assuming no air resistance? Use g = 9.8 m/s2.
