# Solution: On the Apollo 14 mission to the moon, astronaut Alan Shepard hit a golf ball with a 6 iron. The acceleration due to gravity on the moon is 1/6 of its value on earth. Suppose he hits the ball with a speed of 21 m/s at an angle 40 above the horizontal.You may want to review (Pages 86 - 90). For help with math skills, you may want to review: Quadratic Equations How much farther did the ball travel on the moon than it would have on earth?For how much more time was the ball in flight?
