Physics 10-3-23 Jumping on the Moon & a Rocket Problem – #59 & #62

PHYSICS: Great work today! Are you thinking better on these “advanced” angular projectile motion problems?

The mic batteries died after about 10 minutes, so you get a bonus post from last year. First here’s discussion on #59 – jumping on the moon. I’m curious though, is there an easier way? After that is part a on #62, the rocket problem. What about b & c? Do you think you could tackle the rest now? And here’s a thought – is it really super hard or more so it just has a ton of little steps that all finally come together? Are you using the formulas or are you letting them use you? Use your formulas to tell a story. And make sure it makes sense!!
