Teaching Physics with the Physics Suite
Two high school students in a physics olympics competition are trying to hit a small box on the floor using a spring-loaded marble gun placed horizontally on and fastened rigidly to a table. The first student compresses the spring 1.0 cm and the marble falls 20 cm short of the target which is 2.0 m horizontally from the edge of the table. How far should the second student compress the spring so that the same marble falls into the box?
