A ball is dropped from the top of a building. The height, , of the ball above the ground (in feet) is given as a function of time, , (in seconds) by
y = 1640 - 16t^2
When does the ball hit the ground, and how fast is it going at that time? Give your answer in feet per second and in miles per hour (1 ft/sec = 15/22 mph).
v(t) = ______ mph
v(t) = ________ ft per second
The trough is in the shape of a triangular prism. It is 5 ft long and its vertical cross sections are isosceles triangles with base 2ft and height 3ft. Water is being siphoned out of the trough at the rate of 2 cubic feet per minute. At any... time t, let h be the depth and V be the volumeof water in the trough.
