A spring-loaded toy dart is used to shoot a dart straight up in the air, and the dart reaches a maximum height of 16m. The same dart is shot straight up a second time from the same gun, but this time the spring is compressed only half as far before firing. How far up does the dart go this time?

    You buy a plastic dart gun, and being a clever physics student you decide to do a quick calculation to find its maximum horizontal range. You shoot the gun straight up, and it takes 3.8 s for the dart to land back at the barrel.
