Note: This is part 4th of a 4 part question, split as 4 separate questions here.

- If $s=f(t)$ is the distance function, representing the distance 's' travelled by a particle in time t, then the velocity and acceleration functions are $v=\large\frac{ds}{dt}$$=t'(t)$ and $a=\large\frac{d^2s}{dt^2}=f''(t)$
- When a particle starts from rest,velocity v and time t are 0. When a particle is thrown up, it reaches maximum height at which $v=0$ and then falls back to earth. When a moving particle comes rest, $v=0$
- If $y=f(x)$ then $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=f'(x)$ is the rate of change of $y$ w.r.t $x$
- $\large\frac{dy}{dx_{(x_1,y_1)}}$ is the slope of the tangent to the curve at the point $(x_1,y_1) $ on the curve. It is the slope of the curve at that point.
- The normal at a point $(x_1,y_1)$ on $y=f(x)$ is perpendicular to the tangent at $(x_1,y_1)$

$x=100t-\large\frac{2s}{2}$$t^2$

The velocity with which the missile strikes the ground when the missile strikes the ground $x=0$

Therefore $100t -\large\frac{25}{2}t^2=0$ or

$\large\frac{t}{2}$$(200-25t)=0=>t=0,8$

Therefore the missile reaches the ground again at $t=8 \;secs$

Substitute $t=8$ in (ii) is obtain the velocity with which it strikes the ground.

The velocity $=100-25 \times 8$

$\qquad\quad=-100 \;m/sec$
