1. anonymous

what does "s" represent here? :)

2. anonymous

it is just part of the formula that i am given would it represent the 1053 ft?

3. anonymous

could be, if so then you can find t, that's why I have asked lol :)

4. anonymous

find t how?

5. anonymous

can you set it up fo rme?

6. anonymous

if s = represents the height in this equation then solve for t:$s = 16t^2 \rightarrow 1053 = 16t^2$$t^2 = \frac{1053}{16} \rightarrow t = \sqrt(\frac{1053}{16}) \approx 8.11 \secs$ that if S = height in the equation ^_^

ok, thank you very much.
