An object is dropped from a height of 1700 ft above the ground. The function h=16t^2+1700 gives the object’s height h in feet during free fall at t seconds.
a. When will the object be at 1000ft above the ground?
b. When will the object be 940ft above the ground?
c. What are a reasonable domain and range for the function h?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1both part a and b are asking you to find the time t for a given h. for a, solve the following equations for t: 16t^2 + 1700 = 1000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got t = 6.614 16t^2 +1700 = 1000 16t^2 = 700 t^2 = 43.75 then take square root of both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01000=16t^2+1700 700=16t^2 _/700=_/16t^2 26.458/16=16t/16 t=1.654 is what I did

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You need to divide by 16 first, before you take the square root.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Domain = what values of time would be used here? t > 0, since negative time not reasonable. And you probably need to find when the ball hits the ground, since after that time, the ball would be underground.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01700=16t^2 _/106.25=t^2 t=10.3078 Is what I got for how long it takes to hit the ground.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Cool. So the a reasonable domain is from 0 to 10.3078.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Range: what values of height seem reasonable? h > 0, because negative height would mean that the ball was underground. And ... since the ball was "dropped" from a height of 1700 (vs being "thrown up" from a height) the maximum height would be 1700. So ... a reasonable range would be from 0 to 1700.dw:1352328021424:dw
