In this problem, you will predict the total horizontal distance traveled by Robin Hood (Known to his friends as Rob or Bob) before he hits the water. First he will swing from a rope, pendulum style. Then he will let go when he hits the lowest point of his arc and travel, projectile like, until he hits the water. This simulation takes place in the mythical land of Sherwood Forrest.
