The height h in feet of a baseball on Earth after t seconds can be modeled by the function h(t) = 16(t – 1.5)2 + 36, where 16 is a constant in ft/s2 due to Earth's gravity. The gravity on Mars is only 0.38 times that on Earth. If the same baseball were thrown on Mars, it would reach a maximum height 59 feet higher and 2.5 seconds later than on Earth. Write a height function for the baseball thrown on Mars.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is 16 ? they've already told you is a constant in ft/s2 due to Earth's gravity. That means, 16 ft/s^2 is the gravity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, let's look closely on what the graph supposed to represent. h(t) = 16(t – 1.5)2 + 36 f(t)=a(xh)^2+k (h,k) is the vertex We know from an upside down parabola, the vertex is at the maximum height. h (x axis) represent the time in which the objects change Height on k ( yaxis) dw:1438117704283:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(x)=a(xh)^2+k Gravity represents a time represents h height represents k The projectile motion on earth is h(t) = 16(t – 1.5)^2 + 36 Gravity is...? Time is...? and Height is...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you know your gravity, time, and height, you can easily use the earth's projectile motion equation and convert it to the projectile motion on mars.
