A girl standing on the top of a building 200 feet highs throws a water balloon up in the air at a velocity of 30ft/sec. The equation for the height of the water balloon is h(t)=16t^2 +30t + 200
Find the average velocity of the water balloon between 2 sec and 2.01 sec

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1abg velocity would be (h(2)  h(2.01))/(22.01)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do i find the instantaneous velocity at two seconds and the direction of the water balloon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it involves calculus. do you know what a derivative is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1instantaneous vel would be dh/dt (differential wrt t) ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1direction of baloon would be the sign of the instantaneous velocity ..if it is positive then it would be in positive direction of the axis you are measuring your height anf vice versa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0am i plugging 2 into t^2 and 2.01 into 30t

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no mate you plugging both into the h(t) function ... its like you finding the value of h(t) at 2 and again value of h(t) at 2.01 what class are you in?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when i plug in 2, i get 196.3 and 2.01, I get 195.6584

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does that make sense? you are basically finding the change in height (ft) from 2 to 2.01 seconds, and then dividing that by the change in time, .01 s

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so i subtract 195.6584 from 196.3 and then divide by .01?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, but your change in height is a little off.. h(2.01) = 195.6584 and h(2) = 196. 195.6584  196 = 0.3416.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for the instantaneous velocity, what must i do? i didnt understand you last time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for instantaneous velocity you have to take the derivative of the position function (h(t)).
