Step 1

Since we only answer up to 3 sub-parts, we’ll answer the first 3. Please resubmit the question and specify the other subparts (up to 3) you’d like answered.

v0= initial velocity = 5 m/s

h0=initial height = 100 m

v(t)= velocity at time t.

h(t)= height at time t.

v(t) = v0 + at, in this we plug the known values.

Answer(a): Velocity of the object at time t = v(t)= 5-1.62t

Step 2

Position at time t= h(t)= h0 + v0t + (1/2)at^2

Answer(a): Position at time t= h(t) = 100+5t - 0.81t^2

Step 3

b) At the maximum height velocity will be 0. so we set v(t)=0 and solve for...
