The Steamboat aloftser in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming is capable of shooting its hot water up from the ground with a speed of 48.0 m/s. How high can this geyser shoot? (HINT: USE KINEMATIC EQUATIONS)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1use energy conservation kinetic energy is converted into potential here. Ekin = 1/2mv^2 Epot =m*g*h 1/2V^2 = g*h

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You conserve energy here..... the kinetic energy in the start is 1/2*m*v^2 ALL this energy is converted to potential energy. The potential energy at the end is given as: m*g*h You know they are equal, so we can use an equation to calculate the height h. m*g*h = m*1/2*V^2 We see that we can take m out: g*h = 1/2 V^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you cant do anything other than that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, you can... but this is the easiest way to do it. You can also solve by using s = 1/2*a*t^2.. a = g = 9.81 m/s2 t = v/g = 48/9.81 s = 1/2 * a * (v/g)^2 = 9.81*(48/9.81)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But it boils down into the same equation as: s = h = 1/2 * g * (v/g)^2 = 1/2 *V^2/g
