Problem: A tiger leaps horizontally from a 6.5m rock with a speed of 3.2 m/s. How far from the base of the rock will she land?

FREE Expert Solution

Uniform accelerated motion (UAM) equations:

 vf = v0 -gty= (vf+v02)ty= v0t-12gt2 vf2= v02 -2gy

We'll determine the flight time using the vertical motion. Once we have the flight time, we'll be able to calculate the range.
