The world record for the discus throw is 74.08m , set by Jürgen Schult in 1986.If he had been competing, not on earth, but on Mars, where the acceleration due to gravity is 0.379 what it is on earth, and if he had thrown the discus in exactly the same way as on earth, what would be his Martian record for this throw? Assume that the discus is released essentially at ground level
