If a ball is thrown into the air with a velocity of 48 ft/s, its height in feet t seconds later is given by y = 48t − 16t2.
(a) Find the average velocity for the time period beginning when t = 2 and lasting for each of the following.
(i) 0.5 seconds
ft/s

(ii) 0.1 seconds
ft/s

(iii) 0.05 seconds
ft/s

(iv) 0.01 seconds
ft/s

(b) Estimate the instantaneous velocity when t = 2.
ft/s

  2. y(t) = 48t − 16t^2 (note notation)

    i)
    y(2.5) =48(2.5)-16(6.25) = 20
    y(2) = 48(2)-16(4) = 32
    20-32 = -12 ft in .5 s
    -12/.5 = -24

    ii)
    y(2.1) = 48*2.1 -16*2.1^2 = 30.24
    30.24-32 = -1.76
    -1.76/.1 =-17.6

    etc getting closer and closer to
    dy/dt = v at t = 2 for part b
    cheating for that
    dy/dt = 48 - 32 t
    at t = 2
    dy/dt = v = 48 - 64 = -16 :)
