Question

Asked Sep 19, 2019

Good morning,

I am stuck on a homework problem. It reads:

"On a distant planet, golf is just as popular as it is on earth. A golfer tees off and drives the ball 2.10 times as far as he would have on earth, given the same initial velocities on both planets. The ball is launched at a speed of 40.2 m/s at an angle of 32 ° above the horizontal. When the ball lands, it is at the same level as the tee. On the distant planet, what are **(a)** the maximum height and **(b)** the range of the ball?"

I figured out how to find the vector components, but I have no idea what to do next. Thank you in advance for your help!

Step 1

The range is inversely proportional to g.

Step 2

(a)The maximum height...
