# An object is thrown vertically from a height of #2 m# at #21 m/s#. How long will it take for the object to hit the ground?

Let's calculate the speed at which it will land by using

To find the time it takes for the object to hit the ground, we can use the kinematic equation:

[ \text{time} = \sqrt{\frac{2 \times \text{height}}{g}} ]

Where:

- ( \text{height} = 2 ) meters (initial height)
- ( g ) is the acceleration due to gravity, approximately ( 9.81 , \text{m/s}^2 )

Plugging in the values:

[ \text{time} = \sqrt{\frac{2 \times 2}{9.81}} ]

[ \text{time} \approx \sqrt{\frac{4}{9.81}} ]

[ \text{time} \approx \sqrt{0.407} ]

[ \text{time} \approx 0.638 , \text{s} ]

So, it will take approximately 0.638 seconds for the object to hit the ground.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- A car travels 165 miles in 5 hours. How many miles does it average per hour?
- What is the average speed of an object that is moving at #3 m/s# at #t=0# and accelerates at a rate of #a(t) =9-t^2/3# on #t in [3,5]#?
- The position of an object moving along a line is given by #p(t) = t-cos(( pi )/4t) #. What is the speed of the object at #t = 2 #?
- An object travels North at # 8 m/s# for #8 s# and then travels South at # 5 m/s# for # 2 s#. What are the object's average speed and velocity?
- What is the average speed of an object that is not moving at #t=0# and accelerates at a rate of #a(t) =5t-10# on #t in [3, 5]#?
