    Exclamation Vertical Motion

    hey guys,

    I need help with a vertical motion problem, i usually don't go online but i'm really stumped

    Mike throws a pass during a football game to jim. the football leaves his hand 6 feet above the ground and has an initial velocity of 80fps
    a) write an equation that represents the scenario if its path can be modeled by
    h=-16t^2+vt+h

    b) i have to graph it and sketch the vertex y and x intercepts

    c) when is the football at its highest

    d)what is the max height the football is thrown

    e) when does the football hit the ground

    Re: Vertical Motion

    You are given height as a function of time, in the form of a parabolic function. Do you know how to find the axis of symmetry?
