If a person can jump a horizontal distance of 3 m on Earth, how far could the person jump on the moon where the acceleration due to gravity is 1.7 m/s2 (about 1/6 of the Earth's gravitational acceleration)
Moon' acceleration due to gravity is approx. 1/6 of that of earth,s
So a person who can jump a horizontal distance of 3 m on earth, can jump 6 x 3 = 18 m.
Answer: 18 m
