Horizontal range of a projectile \(\displaystyle{R}={V}^{{2}}{\frac{{{\sin{{2}}}\theta}}{{{g}}}}\)
From equation \(\displaystyle{R}\approx{\frac{{{1}}}{{{g}}}}\) and so
If \(\displaystyle{g}_{{{m}\infty{n}}}={\frac{{{1}}}{{{6}}}}{g}_{{{e}{a}{r}{t}{h}}}\)
If \(\displaystyle{R}_{{{m}\infty{n}}}=\) six time \(\displaystyle{R}_{{{e}{a}{r}{t}{h}}}\)

The Moon and Earth are bound together by gravity. If, instead, the force of attraction were the result of each having a charge of the same magnitude but opposite in sing, find the quantity of charge that would have to be placed on each to produce the required force.

A paraglider is flying horizontally at a constant speed.Assume that only two forces act on it in the vertical direction,its weight and a vertical lift force exerted on its wings by theair. The lift force has a magnitude of 1800 N.
(a) What is the magnitude and direction of the force that theparaglider exerts on the earth ?
(b)If the lift force should suddenly decrease to 1200 N, whatwould be the vertical acceleration of the glider ? For bothquestions, take the upward direction to be the + y direction.

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use \(\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\) for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.
