Snoopy is in his plane 4500 feet above the ground. He fires a projectile straight up. The initial velocity of the projectile is 340 feet per second. (After the projectile is fired, it has no acceleration, so its height can be modeled by a "falling body" model.) The Red Baron is maintaing a constant altitude of 5200 feet.
a) write an equation describing the upward motion of the projectile. (Assume there is no air resistance. Let y represent the altitude of the projectile in feet, and let t represent the time after firing in seconds.)
B) When on the way up might the projectile intersect the re

Y=4500 + 340x -16x^2 where x is time and y is altitude in feet.

in order to find when it will intersect type in 5200 for y

ask if u need clarification of how i got there :)
