Omar throws a softball from a starting height of 8 feet, with an initial velocity of 18 feet per second. Which of the following equations shows the path of the softball?
H(t) = −16t2 + 26
H(t) = −16t2 + 26t
H(t) = −16t2 + 8t + 18
H(t) = −16t2 + 18t + 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The starting height is the height at time zero. So you need to choose a function with H(0) = 8. And the velocity is the derivative of position, so you need the function with H'(0) = 18. What do you think?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you put t=0 into A, do you get H(0) = 8 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0h is 8 when t = 0 h(0) = 16(0)^2 + 18(0) = 8 = 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plug 0 for t in C and you get h = 18  but its not 18 at time 0 its 8
