    11. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
