while on the moon, the Apollo astronauts enjoyed the effect of a gravity much smaller than that on earth. if Neil Armstrong jumped up on the moon with an initial speed of 1.51 m/s to a height of 0.700m, what amount of gravitational acceleration did he experience?

• Physics -

Using conservation of energy,
(1/2)M Vo^2 = M g'H, so
g' = Vo^2/(2H)
is the value of the acceleration of gravity on the moon.

I get 1.63 m/s^2

• Physics -

2gh=v^2
2*0.7*g=1.51^2
1.4g=1.51^2 /g
1.4=2.2801g
g=1.4/2.2801
g=0.6140081575 m/s^2

1.63m/s^2 is not the correct answer, take for example this:

10=5g What is 'g'?
g=10/5=2

• Physics -

1.63 m/s^2 is the correct answer

• Physics -

Marko 1.51^2 /g doesn't equal 2.2801g it equals 2.2801/g. So your answer is the reciprical of the right answer. Nice try though.
