how far will a rock fall in 15 sec if it is dropped 150 feet above the river at an initial speed of 24 ft per sec

math  Steve, Monday, December 17, 2012 at 10:37am
s(t) = 24t + 16t^2
s(15) = 24*15 + 16*225 = 3960 ft
So, since it fell from only 150 ft, it will fall 150 ft. And, it won't take no steenking 15 seconds to hit the water.
Even if it is thrown upward, and the rock's height is
h(t) = 150+24t16t^2
it will hit the water in about 4 seconds.
