    clearly the word "dropped" here is inappropriate, since they are asking what hthe initial velocity should be if it is dropped, the initial velocity is 0!!

    In order to reach the ground in 1 second the Vi would have to have a negative velocity of some value otherwise it would not be fast enough

    lets try this \[a(t)=-32, v(t)=-32t^2+v_0, p(t)=-16t^2+v_0t+224\]

    or more commonly written \[h(t)=-16t^2+v_0t+224\]

    set equal to zero, then put \(t=1\) to solve for \(v_0\)

    oh no your answer will have a \(v_0\) in it

    I plugged in 1 for t and got the 208
