A rock is thrown upward with a velocity of 15 meters per second from the top of a 26 meter high cliff ad i misses the cliff on the way back down. when will the rock be 5 meters from the water below?

  • algebra - ,

    height = -4.9t^2 + 15t + 26

    When the rock is 5 metres above the water,
    5 = -4.9t^2 + 15t + 26
    4.9t^2 - 15t - 21 = 0
    t = (15 ± √636.6)/9.8
    = 4.1052 seconds or a negative

    After appr 4.1 seconds, the rock is 5 metres above the water.
