Question

Jasper the cat slides off the edge of a horizontal tabletop, 0.80 meters above the ground. Hint, his velocity as he leaves the table is horizontal.

a) If he lands on the floor 1.50 meter from the edge of the table, what is the magnitude of his initial velocity, vo?

b) What is the magnitude and direction (as an angle with the floor) of his final velocity as he hits the floor?

Answer #1

A physics book slides off a horizontal tabletop with a speed of
1.10 m/s. It strikes the floor in 0.350 s. Ignore air resistance.
Find
(a) the height of the tabletop above the floor,
(b) the horizontal distance from the edge of the table to the
point where the book strikes the floor, and
(c) the horizontal and vertical components of the book’s
velocity, and the magnitude and direction of its velocity, just
before the book reaches the floor.
