Two identical arrows, one with twice the speed of the other, are fired into a bale of hay. Assuming the hay exerts a constant "frictional" force on the arrows, the faster arrow will penetrate how much farther than the slower arrow? Explain.
Step 1 of 2:
The speed with which one arrow is shot is:
The speed of the other arrow is:
The constant negative acceleration due to the hay is a.
Now, the distances at which the 2 arrows come to rest are:
