Applications
99–100 Falling-Body Problems Suppose an object is
dropped from a height h, above the ground. Then its height after
seconds is given by h = -1612 + ho, where h is measured in
feet. Use this information to solve the problem.
99. If a ball is dropped from 288 ft above the ground, how
long does it take to reach ground level?
100. A ball is dropped from the top of a building 96 ft tall.
(a) How long will it take to fall half the distance to ground
level?
(b) How long will it take to fall to ground level?
