Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, September 26, 2007 at 8:51pm.

Tom the cat is chasing Jerry the mouse across a table surface 1.5 m off the floor. Jerry steps out of the way at the last second, and Tom slides off the edge of the table at a speed of 5.0 m/s. Where will Tom strike the floor, and what velocity components will he have just before he hits?

I got 2.75m and -5.39m/s.

Work:
-1.5m=-1/2(9.8m/s^2)t^2-->t=.55s
x=(5m/s)(.55s)=2.75m
vy=0-(9.8m/s^2)(.55s)=-5.39m/s
