Homework Help: Physics

Posted by APpreciative Student on Sunday, January 30, 2011 at 8:19pm.

Hi~ Thank you for your help~
Imagine you are on an island and you have two coconuts. The coconuts are launched with the same initial velocity. The trajectory of coconutA is such that coconutA goes very high, but falls not much farther from the spot it was launched. The trajectory of coconutB is such that coconutB goes not as high as coconutA, but falls much farther from the spot it was launched. Which coconuts hits the ground first?

Apparently the answer is supposed to be coconutB, but could you explain why, because I do not understand why...
Thank you very much
