The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri, is $190$190 m tall.
We can model the behaviour of objects falling from the arch using Galileo's formula for falling objects: $d=16t^2$d=16t2, where $d$d is distance fallen in metres and $t$t is time in seconds since the object was dropped. The graph of this relationship is drawn here.
What does the point at $\left(0,0\right)$(0,0) represent?
