well I was assuming that the total distance would be 9.2m to travel the full parabola or 4.6m to get to maximum height I was getting there through my own weird means.
I tend to take unorthodox methods to get to answers. I just want to know if it took a cork 1.37s to go up and down if the...
jeeze i should re-read what I post.
The time i presented is the time the cork took to travel vertically up and down
and I am looking for the launch velocity of the cork.
I used d=1/2at^2 equation so that I could find the full distance that it traveled I just derived it from d=1/2at^2+vt
you are given the time it takes for a cork to be launched up vertically which is 1.37s
The Attempt at a Solution
Because I wanted the height of the parabola I devided both the time and the distance by 2...
