Problem 2.16: Playing constant acceleration putt-putt golf

vx = cm/s

ax = cm/s2

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Shown is a red golf ball that you are to putt into the green hole (position is given in centimeters and time is given in seconds). Two time-dependent obstacles are in your way. Find the initial velocity and the acceleration that will score a hole-in-one. Show all your work leading up to this velocity and acceleration. Restart.
