Step 1

Consider the model function that represents the height above the ground as s(... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosers'(1) lim )=s(1) dt ds The instantaneous velocity at t=1 is t-1 t=1 Substitute the s(t) and s(1) in the limit and evaluate it as follows \$(1) lim ()-s(1) t1 t-1 .(-16 +64)-(-16(1+64) lim t-1 -16 64 6416 =lim t-1 t1 fullscreen
