11. Darren swings at a golf ball on the ground with a velocity
of 10 feet per second. How long was the ball in the air?
We’re going to use the following formula to solve this equation.
H(t)=Height object ends at
h= Height object starts at
g=Acceleration due to gravity
v=Initial velocity
t=Time
12. Problem #1
Darren swings at a golf ball on the ground with a velocity
of 10 feet per second. How long was the ball in the air?
We’re going to use the following formula to solve this equation.
H(t)=Height object ends at
h= Height object starts at
g=Acceleration due to gravity
v=Initial velocity
t=Time
13. H(t)=0 (Since we know that the golf ball will hit the ground eventually.)
h=0 (Since the golf ball was hit when it was on the ground.)
g=32 ft. (The acceleration due to gravity is always either 32 ft. or 9.8m.)
v=10 ft. (As told to us by the problem.)
t=??? (This is what we have to ﬁnd out.)
14. The Values
H(t)=0 (Since we know that the golf ball will hit the ground eventually.)
h=0 (Since the golf ball was hit when it was on the ground.)
g=32 ft. (The acceleration due to gravity is always either 32 ft. or 9.8m.)
v=10 ft. (As told to us by the problem.)
t=??? (This is what we have to ﬁnd out.)
15. (0) = -1/2(32)t²+(10)t+(0)
0 = -16t² +10t+0
Now we need to ﬁnd the a, b, and c values of this quadratic.
a = -16
b = 10
c=0
And now we plug those values into the quadratic formula.
16. Plug in the values
(0) = -1/2(32)t²+(10)t+(0)
0 = -16t² +10t+0
Now we need to ﬁnd the a, b, and c values of this quadratic.
a = -16
b = 10
c=0
And now we plug those values into the quadratic formula.
17. Solve
t= t=
We know that the time wasn’t 0 sec. so we discard
that solution and say that the time was about
5/8 sec.
18. Quadratic Formula
Solve
t= t=
We know that the time wasn’t 0 sec. so we discard
that solution and say that the time was about
5/8 sec.
