TI 83 Graphing help !!!
posted by Leo .
Hi
I have spent ages trying to work out the way to program my TI83 calculator to solve the following... I would appreciate guidance or direction to a site that can show me how to solve the following;
motion of two stage rocket is stated by it height y in metres above the ground since t seconds since launch.
Flies vertically Ist stage burns for 5 seconds and cuts out. 2nd stage rocket is under gravity alone.
modelled by the equations
Stage 1 height y = 10t2
time 0¡Ü t <5
stage 2 height y = 5t2 + 150t  375
time t >5
Question asks you plot function on ti 83, using an appropriate window for time(s)
hence sketch a position time graph for each stage of flight ading labels etc..
also ask you to plot use the n deriv function to plot rate of change of function.
If I can find the basic means of plotting graph I should be able to answer the question but cannot find anything in manual that is similar to solving a question of this type.
I appreciate yout time and effort and thanks !!!!!!!!
