The bed of the pickup truck is one meter high (from the ground). Complete the following questions assuming that the air resistance is negligible.


a) Draw the initial velocity vector vi of the pumpkin with the vix and viy also shown.

b) Plot the x and y components of velocity (vx and vy ) versus time for the pumpkin.

c) What time will the pumpkin take to reach its maximum height?

d) What is the maximum height of the pumpkin's trajectory (from the ground) ?
