I have two quick questions. The first is, if a ball is thrown from a bridge 25 meter above the ground at 49m/s, is the acceleration negative? I thought since it was thrown up, it would be positive, but the book has a similar problem, a ball is thrown upward at a speed of 48ft/s from a cliff 432ft above the ground, and it says the acceleration is -32.

Second, what is the antiderivative of [tex]\frac{x^2}{\sqrt{x}} + \frac{1}{sin^2x}[/tex]

I can got:

[tex]\frac{2}{5}x^{5/2}+\frac{1}{\tan{x}}+c[/tex]

But I am pretty sure [tex]\frac{1}{\tan{x}}[/tex] isn't right.
