# Solution: In a carnival booth, you win a stuffed giraffe if you toss a quarter into a small dish. The dish is on a shelf above the point where the quarter leaves your hand and is a horizontal distance of 2.1 m from this point (the figure ). If you toss the coin with a velocity of 6.4 m/s at an angle of 60 (Pages 75 - 82) above the horizontal, the coin lands in the dish. You can ignore air resistance.You may want to review (Pages 75 - 82) .
