# Halloween Gourd Launcher#

At a local pumpkin patch, Maya is hired to create a Hallowe’en gourd launcher. Maya wants to launch a 1.32 $$kg$$ gourd (decorated as an “Angry Bird”) at a large pumpkin (decorated as a “pig”) which sits on top of a $$h =$$ 2.12 $$m$$ tall hay bale as shown in the figure.

Assume that the gourd undergoes projectile motion and that it hits the pumpkin (“pig”) with a velocity of $$\overrightarrow{v} =$$ 4.71 $$\hat{x} + 0 \hat{y} \frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}}$$.

(You may assume the initial height of where the gourd is launched from to be negligible.) ## Part 1#

What was the $$x$$-component of the gourd’s initial velocity?

Please enter in a numeric value in $$m/s$$.

## Part 2#

What was the $$y$$-component of the gourd’s initial velocity?

Please enter in a numeric value in $$m/s$$.

## Part 3#

What horizontal distance away from the pumpkin was the gourd launched from?

Please enter in a numeric value in $$m$$.

## Part 4#

What was the magnitude of the initial velocity of the gourd?

Please enter in a numeric value in $$m/s$$.

## Part 5#

What was the angle above the horizontal at which the gourd was launched?
