16. (a) 190 ft/sec (b) 2 seconds (c) After 8 seconds, and its velocity was 0 ft/sec then (d) After about 11 seconds, and it was falling 90 ft/sec then (e) About 3 seconds (from the rocket’s highest point) (f) The acceleration was greatest just before the engine stopped. The acceleration was constant from t 5 2 to t 5 11, while the rocket was in free fall. 17. Note that “downward velocity” is positive when McCarthy is falling downward. His downward velocity increases steadily until the parachute opens, and then decreases to a constant downward velocity. One possible sketch: 18. (a) We estimate the slopes at several points as follows, then connect the points to create a smooth curve. Horizontal axis: Days Vertical axis: Flies per day (b) Fastest: Around the 25th day Slowest: Day 50 or day 0 19. The particle is at (5, 2) when 4 t 3 2 16 t 2 1 15 t 5 5, which occurs at t < 2.83. 20. The motion can be simulated in parametric mode using x 1 ( t ) 5 2 t 3 2 13 t 2 1 22 t 2 5 and y 1 ( t ) 5 2 in [ 2 6, 8] by [ 2 3, 5].

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
