your readiness for Exam 2. It is due in conference on Tuesday, January 29 and will be returned to you in conference on Thursday, January 31, the day before Exam 2. Please show your work and report your answers to no more than three signiﬁcant ﬁgures. la. [10 pts] You want to reenact Galileo’s famous experiments with gravity. Instead of tossing masses of
different sizes and weights, you use rotten tomatoes. You ﬁnd a way onto the roof of Olin Hall, above
a section of lawn. You realize that the tomatoes will make more dramatic Splats if you were to throw
them onto the concrete walk a few meters away from the base of the building. For an initial height h =
19.6 In, and a minimum horizontal travel distance ofxmil1 = 5.00 m, what minimum horizontal speed
vxm'“ should you give a tomato for it to land on the concrete? You launch the tomato in the horizontal direction. Please write your answer in the box. 1

while you stood on the force plate. Below are rectangles representing your forearms, the entire rest of
your body, and the force plate. Please draw vectors representing the forces acting on them. Assume
that your arms were positioned symmetrically, such that all horizontal forces cancel. In other words,
you need to draw vectors only up or down. Clearly label each force uSi'ng the form F A on B, where “A on B” means Object A acting on Object B. r
