Carnivals and Quadratics
Adjust the parameters to model each situation. Animate time to see the height of the ball.
If the starting height is 3 feet, the velocity is 32 feet per second, and the bell is at 20 feet, what is the maximum height and will a prize be won? If a prize won't be won, would raising the starting height by 1 foot make a difference?
With a bell height of 30 feet and starting height of 2 feet, what is the minimum velocity needed to reach the bell?
Does increasing the starting height be 1 foot or increasing the velocity by 1 foot per second have a greater effect on the maximum height?
