launch velocity for a range of air pressures. Taking the launcher to Institute Park, you angle the
launcher at 30" up from horizontal and ﬁre a tomato. It arcs beautifully through the air, reaching a
maximum height before turning down to splat everywhere. Your roommate, a civil engineer with
surveying equipment, measures the displacement ﬁom the tomato’s initial position to ﬁnal impact
with the ground to be x: = 50.0 m and yf = 0.0 m. The tomato’s initial position is denoted with a gray dot on the coordinate system below. Find the initial launch velocity (vector), vi. Ignore air resistance. «Ag Y‘ol'r’ 4A_..__.__ ( , a" z r 5 m 5 U 4 (5.0) i V” m ‘50

equipment on a cart and take it into an elevator. You put the force plate on the ﬂoor of the elevator, as
in the sketch on the left. The elevator accelerates upward. The rectangles in the center and on the right
represent your body and the force plate. Please draw vectors representing the forces acting on them.
