You are traveling in a convertible with the top down. The car is moving at a constant velocity of 16.6 m/s, due east along flat ground. You throw a tomato straight upward at a speed of 9.85 m/s. How far has the car moved when you get a chance to catch the tomato?

  • physics -

    hf=hi+1/2 g t^2 + vit
    hf, hi=0
    t= 2vi/g= solve that.

    horizonal distance= t*16.6m/s
