In the following graph the point (6, 8.2) is a minimum point and the point (12, 14.6) is a maximum point. d 15 (12, 14.6) 10. (6, 8.2) 5 0 (a) 6 12 18 24 t Find the value of (i) Q; (ii) P. (3) (b) Find the first time in the 24-hour period when the depth of the water is 10 metres. (3) (c) (i) Use the symmetry of the graph to find the next time when the depth of the water is 10 metres. (ii) Hence find the time intervals in the 24-hour period during which the water is less than 10 metres deep. (4) 172 249. A ball is thrown vertically upwards into the air. The height, h metres, of the ball above the ground after t seconds is given by h = 2 + 20t – 5t2, t ≥ 0 (a) Find the initial height above the ground of the ball (that is, its height at the instant when it is released).
