### Interesting Quadratic Models

Posted:

**Fri Sep 30, 2011 1:49 am UTC**For a presentation to my class in pre-calculus, I have to find a quadratic model and detail its usage in real life.

Bonus points are given for an interesting and unique one. Do any of you guys know of a cool quadratic model with interesting uses in the real world?

Note: it cannot be a general equation; it has to have constants and be defined in terms of x and not much else.

Thanks in advance!
