This lab will have you take a look at the parabolic path to try to determine the maximum altitude the plane reaches. First, you will work with data given about the parabola to come up with a quadratic model for the flight. Then you will work to find the maximum value of the model. Now for the data:
Height of a Zero-G Flight t Seconds After Starting a Parabolic Flight Path
Time t in seconds 2 20 40
Height h in feet 23645 32015 33715
To find the quadratic model, you will be plugging the data into the model . The data points given are just like x and y values, where the x value is the time t in seconds and the y value is the altitude h in feet. Plug these into the model and you will get equations with a, b and c.
