A kicker punts a football from 3 feet above the ground with an initial velocity of 47 feet per second.
Find the height (in feet) of the football 2 seconds after the punt.
The height of the ball is given by `h(t)= -16t^2 + 47t + 3`
1 Answer | Add Yours
To find the height you simply put 2 instead of `t` into your formula for height.
Hence the height of the football 2 seconds after the punt is 33 feet.
