In his car, a driver tosses an egg vertically from chest height so that the peak of its path is just below the ceiling of the passenger compartment, which is 56 cm above his release point. He catches the egg at the same height at which he released it.
(a) If you are a roadside observer, and measure the horizontal distance between catch and release points to be 16 m, how fast is the car moving?

• Physics -

(b) In your reference frame, at what angle above the horizontal was the egg thrown?
