The acceleration due to gravity on a planet other than the earth has a magnitude of 1.50 m/s2. As in examples 6, 7 and 8, a placekicker kicks a football with an initial speed of 20.3 m/s at an angle of 39.4 ° above horizontal. Assume that the ball is kicked on this other planet instead of on the earth. Find (a) the maximum height H and (b) the range that the ball would attain on the other planet.

and your thinking is.....what?

What will be the effect on time in flight with changing g?
