5-114.

Notice that the units are in meters, not feet. Which generic falling object (in earth) equation should we use?

Set up the generic falling object (on Earth) equation, plugging in values for initial velocity, *v*_{0}; and initial position, *s*_{0}.

Evaluate at *t* = 1 and *t* = 2.

Optimize the position.

Be sure to answer both questions.
