Activity 5 – Inquiry-Based Learning Project MATH0200 Name:_________________________ Date:__________________________ Scientists at Vandenberg Air Force Base are interested in tracing the path of some newly designed rockets. They will launch two rockets at 100 feet per second. One will depart at 45 ° , the other at 60 ° . From vector analysis and gravity, you determine the following coordinates ( x, y ) as a function of time t where y stands for height in feet above the ground and x stands for lateral distance traveled. 45 ° x = 100cos ( 45 ° ) t y =− 16 t 2 + 100sin ( 45 ° ) t 60 ° x = 100cos ( 60 ° ) t y =− 16 t 2 + 100sin ( 60 ° ) t 1. For each angle, fill in the chart (round to one decimal place. t 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 3.5 4 4.5 5 5.5 x 45 y 45 x 60 y 60 2. What are a few things you notice when looking at the table values? Think about the big picture and the fact that
