(a) If a person can jump a maximum horizontal distance (by using a 45° projection angle) of 3.43 m on Earth, what would be his maximum range on the Moon, where the free-fall acceleration is g/6 and g = 9.80 m/s2?
m

(b) Repeat for Mars, where the acceleration due to gravity is 0.38g.

1. a. dmax = 6 * 3.43m = 20.58 m.

b. dmax = 3.43m/0.38 = 9.03 m.
