In Denver, children bring their old jack-o-lanterns to the top of a tower and compete for accuracy in hitting a target on the ground. Suppose that the tower height is h = 9.80 m, and that the bulls-eye is a horizontal distance of d = 3.2 m from the launch point. If the pumpkin is thrown horizontally, what is the launch speed needed to hit the bulls-eye? (Neglect air resistance.)
