Every year in Delaware there is a contest where people create cannons and catapults designed to launch pumpkins as far in the air as possible. the equation y=15+110x-16x^2 can be used to represent the height, y, of a launched pumpkin, where x is the time in seconds that the ...

A projectile is launched vertically upward from the top of a 240-foot building. This translates to the model y = -16t^2 + 32t + 240 where y is the height in feet and t is the time in seconds after it was launched, When will the projectile hit the ground?

Scientists are experimenting with a kind of gun that may eventually be used to fire payloads directly into orbit. In one test, this gun accelerates a 4.8-kg projectile from rest to a speed of3.9 103 m/s. The net force accelerating the projectile is 4.8 105 N. How much time is ...
