1. Stone throwing velocity problem

A stone is thrown straight up from the edge of a roof, 925 feet above the ground, at a speed of 12 feet per second. A. Remembering that the acceleration due to gravity is -32 feet per second squared, how high is the stone 2 seconds later? B. At what time does the stone hit the ground? C. What is the velocity of the stone when it hits the ground? I have tried attempting this problem multiple ways and i still cant get the correct answers Can anyone help me. Thank you.

2. Well, what you know is that $a= -32$. Using this you can find the velocity at time t by integrating and solving for the integrating constant. And from that you can find the position at time t doing the same thing you did for velocity. You solve for the integrating constants using your initial conditions.

3. What equation would i use for this though?

you should have at least been exposed to the vertical motion equation for position and how it is derived ...

$h(t) = h_0 + v_0 t - 16t^2$

you were given $v_0 = 12$ ft/s and $h_0 = 925$ ft (a roof height ?)

part (a)

evaluate $h(2)$

part (b)

set $h(t) = 0$ and solve for $t$

part (c)

$h'(t) = v(t)$
