• 16 represents 1/2g, the gravitational pull due to gravity (measured in feet per second2).

• V0 is the initial velocity (how hard do you throw the object, measured in feet per second).

• S0 is the intitial distance above ground (in feet). Ifyou are standing on the ground, then s0 = 0.

a) What is the function that describes this problem?

Answer:

b). The ball will be how high above the ground after 1 second?

Answer:

Show work in this space.

c). How long will it take to hit the ground?

Answer:

Show work here.

d). Wha is the maximum height of the ball? What time will the maximum height be attained?
