Problem: A grasshopper hops down a level road. On each hop, the grasshopper launches itself at angle exttip{ heta_{0}}{theta_0} = 50 and achieves a range exttip{R}{R} = 1.3 m .What is the average horizontal speed of the grasshopper as it progresses down the road? Assume that the time spent on the ground between hops is negligible.
