toy rocket Sean just got a toy rocket that flies at a rate of v = 30t feet per second. The rocket is designed to fly straight up for ten seconds and then release a parachute and float back down. At what height will the parachute be deployed? Homework Help ✎

The height will be represented by the area under the curve v = 30t between t = 0 and t = 10 seconds.

Why does area represent distance?
