An astronaut on the moon, where g=1.6m/s/s, strikes a golfball giving the ball a velocity of 32m/s [35degrees above the moons horizontal]. The ball lands in a crater floor that is 15m below the level where it was struck. Determine:

a) The maximum height of the ball

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

sin(35)=Vy/32

Vy= 18m/s

d=V1t+1/2at^2

0=18t + 0.5(-1.6)t^2

0.8t=18

t=22.5

d=18(22.5/2)+0.5(-1.6)(22.5/2)

d=198-8.8

d=189m
