I have this math problem for school that I need help with(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A ball is rolling down an inclined plane. The equation I have is y = .165x^2 + .997x + .845 where y is the distance travelled and x is the time taken

I want to predict the distance it has rolled in 2 days, which I can do

but what sort of assumptions would i have to make?

and what are the strengths and limitations for the model?

for example, a limitation is that when it reaches terminal velocity the model won't work anymore because the model expects the speed to keep increasing

i dont know anything about physics so i need help
