Fox sees a piece of carrion being thrown from nest and rushes to it. Nest is 14.0 m high and carrion is thrown with a horizontal velocity of 1.5m/s. Fox is 7.0 m from the base of tree. What is magnitude of fox's average velocity if it grabs carrion in its mouth just as it touches ground?
Dr Bob said I should find time it takes something to fall 14 meters
During that time, how far horizontally does it goes, given horizontal velocity. Then deal with foxhow fast doe he have to go to cover 7 m in the falling time
answers were:
1.7 m/s
3.5 m/s
4.2 m/s
2.6 m/s
I think the answer is 2.6 m/s
Is that correct if not please help
I have spent the greater part of the day trying to do this
