(a) If a person can jump a maximum horizontal distance (by using a 45° projection angle) of 3.43 m on Earth, what would be his maximum range on the Moon, where the free-fall acceleration is g/6 and g = 9.80 m/s2

    The distance he can cover in a long jump is (Vo^2/g). If he could jump at the same velocity Vo, he would travel six times farther, because of the lower value of g.

    It isn't that simple however. Space suits would have to be worn. You can run at a higher speed in a track suit on Earth than a space suit of the moon.
