can you put up your equation more clearly? is it t = sqrt(h/16) or t = sqrt(h)/16
anonymous
  • anonymous
t=sqrt(h/16)
anonymous
  • anonymous
and h is in feet?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
then it has to be t = sqrt(200/16) = 3.5 seconds
anonymous
  • anonymous
wow, so i just added the extra 3 at the end and got it marked wrongg...
anonymous
  • anonymous
or actually 3.5 unit time measure.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah i said 3.53 seconds
anonymous
  • anonymous
the correct answer is 3.53553391 unit time measure.

  • anonymous
sigh. no one actually would say that though , some "real life problem'. i dislike my teacher.
anonymous
  • anonymous
you shouldn't have said seconds. you probably got marked wrong since you answered in seconds. ask your teacher why they marked it wrong. Because your answer is correct.
anonymous
  • anonymous
alright.
anonymous
  • anonymous
unless the problem specified that t was in seconds, you shouldn't have answered in seconds.
