A target plane flies at 2100 meters. An antiaircraft gun fires a projectile with an initial upward velocity of 200 m/sec. Will the projectile ever reach the altitude of the target plane?
NO, because Maximum height is only
From the given : height of the plane
To determine the maximum, we convert this parabolic equation to its Vertex Form by completing the square
This is the vertex form
This is not enough to hit the plane at 2100 meters
God bless.... I hope the explanation is useful.
