Here is my problem that I am trying to work on: A rock is dropped from the top of a 300-ft cliff. It's velocity at time t seconds is v(t0= -32 t feet per second. a.) Find the height of the rock above the ground at time t. b.) How long will the rock take to reach the ground? c...

A boy wishes to throw a rock into the river below the cliff where he is standing. The cliff is 50 M high and he can throw with a horizontal velocity of 30 m/s. how long does it take for the rock to reach the water? How far, in the horizontal direction, does the rock land?

One day I decide I want to see how high I can throw a rock. I throw a rock straight up in the air and it has a speed of 30 m/s when it leaves my hand. I then realize this was foolish, as I need to get out of the way before the rock comes back down and hits me on the head. How ...
