Solve it for what? Do you mean you have to solve\[-16x^2+340x+4500=0\]?

- anonymous

Or do you have a particular x-value and you need to find y?

Or do you have a y-value and you need to find x?

5200

- anonymous

Are you saying y=5200?

- anonymous

here is the whole problem

- anonymous

Well, it seems reasonable that y=5200 and you need to find the x-values that make it so.

2) 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 maintaining a constant altitude of 5200 feet.

- anonymous

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.)
• Y = -16x^2 + 340x + 4500

- anonymous

c. When, on the way up, might the projectile intersect the Red Baron

- anonymous

d. If the projectile misses the Red Baron on the way up, when might it intersect him on the way down?

- anonymous

Is the equation for y an equation you found or were you given that?

- anonymous

i found the equation

- anonymous

Well, the problem will depend on the coordinate system you use. If you 'attach' a coordinate system to Snoopy, then when he fires the projectile straight up, it will look like (in your coordinate system) the object is being fired straight up the y-axis.
I'm assuming the Red Barron is directly above Snoopy and travelling with same velocity. Does this agree with you so far?

- anonymous

yes it does

- anonymous

Your equation is correct...so now to finish...

- anonymous

y will be 5200, since your coordinate system is based on the ground, though moving along with Snoopy, so you have to solve for t in:\[5200=-16t^2+340t+4500\]

- anonymous

oh okay

- anonymous

There will be two times: the first is the initial impact, the second when it comes back down. It has the same momentum in the x-direction as Snoopy and the Red Barron.

- anonymous

So there are you answers for c and d.

- anonymous

okay so how do i find out the two times it crosses the red barons path

- anonymous

\[t=\frac{5}{8}(17\pm \sqrt{177})\]

- anonymous

You solve the quadratic equation.

- anonymous

\[5200=-16t^2+340t+4500 \rightarrow -16t^2+340t-700=0\]

- anonymous

\[t = \frac{-340 \pm \sqrt{340^2-4(-16)(-700)}}{2(-16)}=\frac{-340 \pm \sqrt{70800}}{-32}s\]

- anonymous

using the quadratic formula (or you can complete the square).

- anonymous

\[\sqrt{70800}=20\sqrt{177}\]

- anonymous

Then just simplify to get the answers above. The lower time will be the first strike (answer c), the larger time will be the second strike (answer d).

- anonymous

ok
