Question 1 1. You are standing on a building 50m tall with a ball. You throw it up into the air at a velocity of 5 meters per second. It is accelerating downward at -9.8 meters per second squared. Which of the following equations describes the height of the ball as a function of time, t?

Question 2 2.

You are designing a cylindrical package. You can spend $4 on packaging, which costs $0.10 per square cm. You would like to determine the maximum volume that you can contain in a cylinder that costs less than $4.

What is the equation for the volume as a function of only the cylinder radius?

Question 3 3.

You are designing a cylindrical package. You can spend $4 on packaging, which costs $0.10 square cm. You would like to determine the maximum volume that you can contain in a cylinder that costs less than $4.

What are the equations for the surface area and volume of this cylinder?

Question 4 4. You have 100 ft of fencing to use to enclose part of a yard. You first choose to enclose the yard with a rectangular pen 'w' feet in width and 'd' feet in depth. As a function of 'w', what is the equation for the area that you can enclose using 100 ft of fence?

Question 5 5. A farmer has 2400ft of fencing and wants to fence off a rectangular field that borders a straight river. He doesn't need fencing along the river. What are the dimensions of the field that has the largest area?
