Nancy’s theory has potential.
The devil is in the details. The teacher didn’t say horizontally.
I get more distance by just walking or running with it and not releasing it at any angle.
Depends how deep the well is.
Physics is Fun.
Ballistics, a part of the calculus. Not my strong suit mathematically.
That is a pretty well.
This is just being lazy here. The teacher would nix that immediately. Since the “throw” would be toward the center of the gravity well. But you never can be sure how she will see it as smart unconventional thinking.
Can this be solved without either (A) lots of experimentation or (B) calculus?
Nancy cuts the Gordian knot quite neatly today. While her teacher dabbles in sterile whiteboard sophistry, N.’s putting the rubber to the road. Or the toy football to the storybook well.
