Problem 2
A ball falling from rest in air is at height h(t) = H0 − gt0 (t + t0 e−t/t0 − t0 ) at time t. Here H0 is
the initial height, g is the gravitational constant and t0 depends on the body.
 a. Find the velocity v(t) of the ball.
 b. Find its acceleration a(t).
 c. Find v(0), a(0).
 d. Find limt→∞ v(t).

Problem 2
 Let f (x) be a function dened for 0 ≤ x ≤ 10. You are given that f (5) = 1 and that
f 0 (5) exists and equals 8. Using only the denition of the derivative, evaluate h0 (5)
where h(x) = (f (x))2 .
