Asked Jan 20, 2020

You sling a shovelful of dirt up from the bottom of a hole with an initial velocity of 32 ft/sec. The dirt must rise 17 ft above the release point to clear the edge of the hole. Is that enough speed to get the dirt out, or had you better duck?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Gravity on Earth a≈ 32 ft/sec^2. We use negative here to point downwards.
Velocity v and position s are rela...
