On a distant planet, golf is just as popular as it is on earth. A golfer tees off and drives the ball 3.7 times as far as he would have on earth, given the same initial velocities on both planets. The ball is launched at a speed of 44 m/s at an angle of 52° above the horizontal. When the ball lands, it is at the same level as the tee.
