The path of the ball for many golf shots can be modelled by a quadratic function.
The path of a golfball can be modelled by the function: .h .= .-0.002d² + 0.4d
where h is the height of the ball, in meters, and d is the horizontal distance
the ball travels, in meters, until it first hits the ground.
a) What is the maximum height reached by the ball?
b) What is the horizontal distance of the ball from the golfer
. . .when the ball reaches its maximum height?
c) What is the distance does the ball travel horizontally until it first hits the ground?
