Achild uses a rubber band to launch a bottle cap at an angle of 37.0° above the horizontal. the cap travels a horizontal distance of 1.30 m in 1.20 s. what was the initial speed of the bottle cap, just after leaving the rubber band, in m/s

Initial velocity will be 1.356 m/sec

Explanation:

Let the initial speed = u

Angle at which rubber band is launched = 37°

Horizontal component of initial velocity $u_x=ucos\Theta =ucos37^{\circ}=0.7986u$

Time is given as t = 1.20 sec

Distance in horizontal direction = 1.30 m

We know that distance = speed × time

So time $t=\frac{distance}{speed}$

$1.20=\frac{1.3}{0.7986u}$

$u=1.356m/sec$

So initial velocity will be 1.356 m/sec

the force required to move the cart is divided by three or 33.33 n.
