I am having a problem at work that I am hoping someone can help me figure out. I have a pest control company and we are pretreating the soil for a new hospital being built.

The structure being built is a hospital and as you can imagine the building has all kinds of nooks and offsets and even some of the wall are cruved more like a circle. I already know the square footage of the building itself because they gave us this information. The square footage of the building is 120,000 SqFt. I would greatly appreciate if someone can help me figure out the square footage of a 5 foot strip around a 120,000 SqFt building who's walls have a lot of insets and odd shapes. I don't if someone can figure out the square footage of the 5 foot strip with the information I gave. I would greatly appreciate any help that you can give me. I need this information for work because we charge for pretreatment of soil by the square footage of the area to be treated and I need this information so that I don't over charge the company we are working for or so I don't cheat myself either. Any and all help we be greatly appreciated because I don't know who else that can help me.

Parametric equations 2008-03-05
From kumi:
I have made a picture of a football pass 45 degrees with 30yds and height of 7ft and 4ft. But I am just stuck there. I have stared at the worksheet for soo long. I have no idea how to solve this, and I don't even know where this is going (I don't understand how parametric equations work). Can you help me with this problem?

1.The quarterback of a football team releases a pass at a height, h, of 7ft above the playing field, and the football is caught by a reciever at a height of 4ft, 30yds directly downfield. The pass is released at an angle of 45 degrees with the horizontal with an initial velocity of vo. The parametric equations for the position of the football at time t are given, in general, by x(t)=(vo cosθ)t and y=h+(vo sinθ)t-16t^2.

a. find the initial velocity of the football when it is released
b. write the specific set of parametric equations for the path of the football
c.use a graphing calculator to graph the path of the football and approximate its maximum height
d. find the time the reciever has to position himself after the quarterback releases the football

Have you ever walked on a football field covered with artificial turf? If so, you probably noticed that the field is not flat. The profile of the surface is arched and highest in the centre, permitting rainwater to drain away quickly.

height from base to highest point- 45.75 centimetres distance of the field- 50 metres

a) The diagram shows the profile of an actual field, viewed from the end of the field. Assuming that the cross-section is a parabola, find the algebraic model that describes this shape.

b) Use your equation to determine the distance from the sidelines where the field surface is 20 cm above the base line.
