An astronaut drops a golf ball to the surface of the moon from a height of 1.5m. The golf ball has a velocity of 2.24 m/s right before it lands on the moon (assume this height to be zero). What is acceleration due to gravity on the moon?

At the top of the Washington monument, a bird drops an acorn into the reflecting pool 169m below. If the acorn has a massof 1.0 kg, with what velocity would it hit the water?

A fiery ball of wood is loaded into a medieval catapult to be thrown into a castle. Unfortunately, the attacking heathens are not very smart and since geometry and physics were not studied in their time, they launched the ball straight up into the air. The catapult launcher si...

The Marshmellow man tromps along the streets of New York City with his blue sailor hat on. He tries to climb up a building to reach Ghostbusters and a gargoyle statue falls 326m to the street below. What height is the gargoyle when it reaches a velocity of 59 m/s?

In the following examples, state how you would use the principle of marginal analysis to make a decision. a. Deciding how many days to wait before doing your laundry b. deciding how much library research to do before writing your term paper c. Deciding how many bags of chips t...

Geometry
I get it now! However, I think you made a mistake with .16=1-b^2/4. It should be turned into .64=1-b^2, and then b^2=0.36. Then x^2/4 + y^2/0.36=1.

Geometry
For an ellipse, one focus is (0,0), one vertex is (2,0), and the eccentricity is 0.4. How do I find the equation for the ellipse? It seems like I have so little information!
