A person standing close to the edge on the top of a 160-foot building throws a baseball vertically upward. The quadratic function

s(t) = -16t^2 +64t + 160

models the ball's height above the ground, s(t), in feet, t seconds after it was thrown.

After how many seconds does the ball reach its maximum height? What is the maximum height?

  • Math -

    1. Vf = Vo + gt,
    t = (Vf - Vo) / g,
    t(up) = (0 - 64) / -32 = 2s. = Time to reach max. ht.

    2. h(2) = -16*2^2 + 64*2 + 160 = 224Ft.
    above ground.

    3. h = Vo*t + 0.5g*t^2 = 224Ft.,
    0*t + 16t^2 = 224,
    t^2 = 14,
    t(dn) = 3.7s.
    T = t(up) + t(dn) = 2 + 3.7 = 5.7s. = Time to hit ground.

    4. Y = 4(sqrtx) + 35,
    Y = 4*o + 35 = 35cm.

    5. Eq1: F(x) = Y = 2x^2.
    Let X = 1, Y = 2*1^2 = 2

    Eq1:Y=2x^2------Eq2:

    V(0,0)----------V(7,4)
    P(1,2)----------P(8,6)
    Y = a(x-h)^2 + k,
    a(8-7)^2 + 4 = 6,
    a = 2.

    Eq2: Y = 2(x-7)^2 + 4.
    Notice that the vertex is shifed 7 units to the right and 4units upward.Therefore, each point on a graph
    of Eq2 should be shifted likewise.

    6. F(x) = Y = -3(x-2)^2 + 12.
    Y = a(x-h)^2 + k.

    V(h,k),
    V(2,12).
