## Homework Statement

During Apollo 14, Alan Shepherd hit a golf ball on the Moon. If he hit the ball at an angle of 15° and an initial velocity of 30m/s,

what was the time in the air?

## Homework Equations

30 m/s / 1.6

So it takes 18.750 seconds to get to the top where you start at 0. Then multiply 18.75 by 2 to get 37.5 so you have total time going down and up,

I got 1.6 cause that is gravity on the moon.

37.5 was the incorrect answer though.

## The Attempt at a Solution

37.5 did not prove to be correct.
