Physics Question?

On the Apollo 14 mission to the moon, astronaut Alan Shepard hit a golf ball with a 6 iron. The acceleration due to gravity on the moon is 1/6 of its value on earth. Suppose he hits the ball with a speed of 15 m/s at an angle 25 ∘ above the horizontal. How much farther did the ball travel on the moon than it would... show more On the Apollo 14 mission to the moon, astronaut Alan Shepard hit a golf ball with a 6 iron.
