A burst of compressed air pushes a pellet out of a blowpipe. The force exerted by the air on the pellet is given by F(t)=F0e(−t/τ), where τ is called a time constant because it has units of time.
What does F0 represent?
F0 represents the maximum force.
F0 represents the minimum force.
F0 represents the average force.
F0 represents the force at time t = 0.
The Attempt at a Solution
i can check as many that apply, i originally though it was the force at t=0 because that would mean it's the inital values. that wasn't right. can someone help
