An object is dropped from a tower of height 224 feet, subject to only the constant acceleration of −32 ft/sec2 due to gravity.
(d) What should its initial velocity be in order to strike the ground after 1 second?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1clearly 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!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets try this \[a(t)=32, v(t)=32t^2+v_0, p(t)=16t^2+v_0t+224\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or more commonly written \[h(t)=16t^2+v_0t+224\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1set equal to zero, then put \(t=1\) to solve for \(v_0\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[t^2\frac{v_0}{16}14=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh no your answer will have a \(v_0\) in it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I plugged in 1 for t and got the 208

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh wait, you are right put \(t=1\) set equal to 0 solve for \(v_0\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[0=16+v_0+224\] \[v_0=208\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i see the problem it is negative and you put 208 i bet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh! Darn. I even said it have to be negative in the beginning didn't I? X(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I plugged it in :) it's right :P thanks! I knew I had to be right but I'm always missing some stupid detail!
