Bert is standing on a ladder picking apples in his father's orchard. As he pulls each apple off the tree, he tosses it into a basket that sits on the ground 2.5 m below at a horizontal distance of 1.9 m from Bert. How fast must Bert throw the apples (horizontally) in order for them to land in the basket? Enter m/s as unit and use g = 10. m/s2.

    Calculate how long it takes the apple to fall 2.5 m. Then divide 1.9 meters (the horizontal distance) by that time.
    That will give you the required throwing speed.
