I'm not sure how to solve this! I tried and got 1.3 / 2.4 seconds. Am i right? Could you explain how to do it if i'm not? Cheers !
In a classic Seinfeld episode, Jerry tosses a loaf of bread (a marble rye) straight upward to his friend George who is leaning out of a third-story window.
If the loaf of bread leaves Jerry's hand at a height of 1 m with an initial velocity of 18 m/sec, write an equation for the vertical position of the bread s (in meters) t seconds after release.
How long will it take the bread to reach George if he catches the bread on the way up at a height of 16 m? Round to the nearest tenth of a second.
Given
Height of Jerry h = 1 m/s
Initial velocity u = 18 m/s
Height of George H= 16 m
Solution
A)
Equation to find the the position
B)
Time taken
