A shot-putter launches the shot from a vertical distance of 2.0 m off the ground (from just above her ear) at a speed of 12.0 m/s. The initial velocity is at an angle of above the horizontal. Assume the ground is flat.
(a) Compared to a projectile launched at the same angle and speed at ground level, would the shot be in the air (1) a longer time, (2) a shorter time, or (3) the same amount of time?
(b) Justify your answer explicitly; deter-mine the shot’s range and velocity just before impact in unit vector (component) notation.
