Instance 11:

A basketball participant is bouncing a ball. On every bounce, the ball reaches a peak that’s 85% of its earlier peak. The entire distance that the ball has travelled simply earlier than they make contact with the ball for the 8th time is 6 metres.

a) At what peak did the basketball participant start bouncing the ball? Give your reply in metres to the closest three decimal locations.

b) Therefore or in any other case, discover the whole distance that the ball travels if the basketball participant continues bouncing the ball till it will definitely doesn’t raise off the bottom. Give your reply in metres to the closest two decimal locations.

Resolution 11 a):

 (textual content{Let }x = textual content{preliminary bounce peak of the ball}) Let’s take into account what this drawback would appear like visually. The peak of every bounce conveniently types a geometrical sequence the place the frequent ratio r=0.75 and the primary time period a=x. Therefore, (T_n=x occasions 0.75^{n-1}) Nevertheless, the gap that the ball travels shouldn’t be a easy geometric sequence. As you may see within the diagram above, aside from the primary bounce and last n bounce (the place the ball solely travels downwards or upwards), the ball travels twice the gap of the bounce peak because it travels up and down. Therefore, we are able to discover the whole distance d travelled by the ball earlier than the nth bounce: start{align*} d &=  2 occasions [text{sum of the heights of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, …, (n-2)th, (n-1)th and nth bounce}] -[text{height of the 1st bounce}] – [text{height of the nth bounce}] &= 2 occasions (T_1+T_2+T_3+…+T_{n-2}+T_{n-1}+T_n) – T_1 – T_n ∴d &= 2 occasions S_n – T_1 – T_n finish{align*} On this query, we’re given the whole distance travelled by the ball earlier than the eighth bounce is 6 metres. So, substitute d=6 and  n=8 into ( d = 2 occasions S_n – T_1 – T_n ): start{align*} 6 &= 2 occasions S_8 – T_1 – T_8 textual content{…………. (equation 1)} finish{align*} To search out S8, substitute (a=x), (n=8) and (r=0.75) into (S_n=frac{a(1-r^n)}{1-r}): start{align*} S_8 &=frac{x(1-0.75^8)}{1-0.75} &= 4[x(1-0.75^8)] finish{align*} To search out T8, substitute (a=x) and (n=8) into (T_n=ar^{n-1}): start{align*} T_8 &= x occasions 0.75^{8-1} &= x occasions 0.75^7 finish{align*} Therefore, we are able to substitute (S_8=4[x(1-0.75^8)] ), (T_1= x ) and (T_8= x occasions 0.75^7 ) into equation 1: (6 = 2 occasions S_8 – T_1 – T_8): start{align*} 6 &= 2 occasions 4[x(1-0.75^8)] – x – x occasions 0.75^7 6 &= 8[x(1-0.75^8)] – x – x occasions 0.75^7 6 &= x[8(1-0.75^8) – 1 – 0.75^7] x &= frac{6}{8(1-0.75^8) – 1 – 0.75^7} x &= 0.989 textual content{ (rounded to three decimal locations)} ∴ textual content{Top at which participant started bouncing ball} &= 0.989 textual content{ m} finish{align*}

Resolution 11 b):

 Partially a), we discovered that the whole distance d travelled by the ball is (d = 2 occasions S_n – T_1 – T_n). Want a refresher? Click on right here to scroll as much as the reason partially a). Partially a), we have been within the distance that the ball travels earlier than the eighth bounce. So, we used (n = 8). Partially b) although, we’re looking for how far the ball can journey if it was allowed to bounce without end. So right here, we let (n = ∞). Substitute (n = ∞) into (d = 2 occasions S_n – T_1 – T_n): start{align*} d &= 2 occasions S_∞ – T_1 – T_∞ finish{align*} Since: start{align*} T_1 &=a &=0.989 textual content{ (from half a)} S_∞ &= frac{a}{1-r},   textual content<1 &=  frac{0.989}{1-0.75} & = 3.956 T_∞ &= 0 textual content{ (the ball doesn’t raise off the bottom on the ‘final’ bounce)} finish{align*} start{align*} ⇒ d &= 2 occasions S_∞ – T_1 – T_∞ &= 2 occasions 3.956 – 0.989 – 0 &= 6.92 textual content{ (rounded to 2 decimal locations)} ∴ textual content{Complete limiting distance} &= 6.92 textual content{ m} finish{align*}
