Warm-Up Exercises EXAMPLE 5
Model a dropped object with a quadratic function
Science Competition
For a science competition,
students must design a container
that prevents an egg from breaking
when dropped from a height of 50
feet. How long does the container
take to hit the ground ?
Warm-Up Exercises EXAMPLE 5
Model a dropped object with a quadratic function

2
+ h
0
Write height function.
0 = 16t
2
+ 50
Substitute 0 for h and 50 for h
0
.
50 = 16t

+ 1.8 t Use a calculator.
Warm-Up Exercises EXAMPLE 5
Model a dropped object with a quadratic function
Reject the negative solution, 1.8, because time must
be positive. The container will fall for about 1.8
seconds before it hits the ground.
