## Homework Statement

I am to figure out the maximum vertical distance and the maximum horizontal distance for an object thrown, as well as how long it take to get there. The information given is the weight of the object, the pounds of force used to launch the object, the distance for the total acceleration for the launch, and the time it takes for the initial launch. I am told to assume that the wind will have no effect on the object for the duration of the flight. I have to use this on multiple problems and have been out of school for so long i have forgotten the equations.

first example is a 20 lb object is launched with a initial force of 1000 lbs that takes 7.5 seconds to go from 0 lbs of force to 1000 lbs of force across a distance of 30.66 inches. it is released from 88.33 inches off the ground.

I am to find how high it goes if it is thrown straight up, and how long it takes to hit the ground.

I am also to find, if thrown at the best possible angle, what is the maximum horizontal distance it could cover, how long it takes to cover that distance, and what is the maximum height it reaches at that angle.
