Homework Help: Integration (story)

  1. Nov 24, 2003 #1
    [SOLVED] Integration (story)

    Use a(t) = -32 feet per second squared as the acceleration due to gravity. A ball is thrown vertically upward from the ground with an initial velocity of 56 feet per second. For how many seconds will the ball be going upward?

    (Calculus question)

    I don't see where I would pull in calculus into this. (Will be on Calc test tomorrow, so other tips to dissect these kind of problems would be nice)

    Well, what do you know that you can apply to this?

    (P.S. the night before is generally a little late to be studying for a test; you'd probably be better off getting a good night's rest)
