A rude tourist throws a peach pit horizontally with a 7.0 m/s velocity out of an elevator cage.

(a) If the elevator is not moving, how long will the pit take to reach the ground, 11.0 m below?

s

(b) How far (horizontally) from the elevator will the pit land?

m

(c) He throws the next pit when the elevator is at the same height but moving upward at a constant 9.5 m/s velocity. How long will it take this pit to land?

s

(d) How far away will this pit land?

2. Relevant equations
