# Solution: A projectile is launched on the Earth with a certain initial velocity and moves without air resistance. Another projectile is launched with the same initial velocity on the Moon where the acceleration due to gravity is onesixth as large. How does the range of the projectile on the Moon compare with that of the projectile on the Earth? (a) It is one-sixth as large. (b) It is the same. (c) It is !6 times larger. (d) It is 6 times larger. (e) It is 36 times larger.
