MFM 2P Date: ________________________ Unit 5: Quadratic Relations Example 2. Kyle and Tim built a model rocket that is equipped with a motion detector that measures the height of the rocket at various times. The height, h , of the rocket in metres , after t seconds , is given by 80 30 5 2 t t h . Kyle and Tim climb to the roof of a building to launch their model rocket. Tim launched the rocket and Kyle laughed, “This is just like those quadratic problems we learned about in math class!” a) How tall is the building? b) At what time does the model rocket hit the ground? c) When does the model rocket reach its maximum height? d) What is the model rocket’s maximum height? e) What is the model rocket’s height at 2 s? f) What time is it when the rocket is 45 m in the air? Example 3. A helium-filled balloon is released by Katrina, and follows a parabolic path due to the wind. It rises up in the air, but once it begins deflating it travels back down to the ground. The height of the balloon h , in feet, with respect to time t , in minutes, is represented by: h = –3.75t 2 – 29.625t +3 , and its graph is displayed below. a) After how long does the balloon land on the ground? b) What is the height of the balloon at 3 min? c) What is the maximum height reached by the balloon? d) When does the balloon begin deflating? *e) How tall is the Katrina? 5 - 9 Be sure to include appropriate units of measurement . They will be given in the question, or you could find them on the appropriate axes.

MFM 2P Date: ________________________ Unit 5: Quadratic Relations 5.3 Applications of Quadratic Functions PRACTICE 1. The height, h , in metres, of an infield fly ball, t seconds after being hit is given by the equation t t h 30 5 2 ; its graphs is provided below. a) Determine the height of the ball at 5 seconds. b) Determine the height of the ball at 2 seconds. c) State the maximum height of the ball. d) Determine the x-intercepts. e) For how long is the ball in the air? e) State the equation of the axis of symmetry. f) When does the ball reach its maximum height? *g) For how long was the ball above 40 m ? 2. Tyson kicks a football into the air. The height of the ball, h , in metres, after t seconds, is represented by the equation t t h 20 5 2 ; its graph is provided below.

    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.
