**Dooley**, Wednesday, September 5, 2007 at 8:48pmx = 1/2 a t^2 + v0 t + x0

and v = at + v0

(a)needs no translation, but some work: with v=12m/s, solve the velocity equation for the special time t (call it t) when the ball is at the window (in terms of 12m/sec and v0). Don't lose your nerve. Now plug that expression for the t1 into the x equation, with x equal to 27 m, and solve for v0.

(b) find the time, t2, when v=0 (That's at the top of the path.) plug that time into the position equation to find the x value at the highest point.

(c)Now that you know v0, return to the velocity equation in part a and solve for t.

(d)Use the position equation and ask "what time is it when x = 0?"
