Unformatted text preview: 5. Solve equation (D) with initial condition v = v0. Show your work! You should get the equation shown. 1. For v0 = 1, what is the maximum value for y? Do this both graphically and using the formula. 2. For v0 = sqrt(2), find the terminal velocity, that is find v, as y -> infinity. (Use limits) 3. Find the escape velocity using this formula. 6. Now we add air resistance. Repeat number 2 using equation (E). What is the new estimated escape velocity in miles/sec? Solve equation (E) analytically. Don’t worry about why the object escapes. Plot the E(v) function using fplot. 7. Find the escape velocity with k = . 1/seed. This will require you to resolve the equation from number 6 using this new k value....
