well, solve the equation for h = 0...what positive value of t makes it so?

  • whpalmer4
at t = 0, h(0) = -16(0)^2 + 144 = 144 feet, which is the height from which it is being dropped. at some later t, h(t) = 0, and that's when it hits the ground.

\[h(t) = 0 = -16t^2+144\]\[16t^2=144\]\[t=\]

does 16*9*9 = 144?

it is 3 gj

16(3)(3) = 144, so that is a reasonable answer. Note that t = -3 also satisfies the equation, but does not satisfy the conditions described in the problem, so it is not a correct solution here.
