Homework Help: Applied Calculus

Posted by Marie on Friday, April 20, 2012 at 4:41pm.

Suppose that an object is thrown down towards the ground from the top of the 1100-ft tall Sears
Tower with an initial velocity of 20 feet per second (the negative velocity indicates that the object
is moving towards the ground). Given that the acceleration due to gravity of the object is a constant
32 feet per second per second, determine how far above the ground the object is exactly six seconds
after being thrown.
