Question

# A data collection probe is dropped from a stationary balloon, and it falls with a velocity (in m/s) given by $v(t)=9.8t$, neglecting air resistance. After 10 s, a chute deploys and the probe immediately slows to a constant speed of 10 m/s, which it maintains until it enters the ocean.Graph the velocity function.

Solution

Verified

The graph of velocity function with time in m/s is shown below:
