The velocity v of a roller coaster in feet per second at the bottom of a hill is Where h is the height of the hill in feet.

Simplify the equation.

Determine the velocity of a roller coaster at the bottom of a 134-foot hill.

    I think I just answered the same question, but somehow the posting has disappeared.

    the equation in that post was
    v = √(64h)
    so when h = 134
    v = √(64*134) = √ 8576 = appr. 92.6

    Reiny,
    So the velocity at the bottom of a 134-foot hill would be v= 92.607?

    *Making a litle more sense to me now. Thank you for your input.
