In 2004 two Martian probes successfully landed on the Red Planet. The final phase of the landing involved bouncing the probes until they came to rest (they were surrounded by protective inflated “balloons”). During one of the bounces, the telemetry (electronic data sent back to Earth) indicated that the probe took off at 25.0 m/s at an angle of 20o and landed 110 m away (and then bounced again). Assuming the landing region was level, determine the acceleration due to gravity near the Martian surface.
