Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Esora on Saturday, November 13, 2010 at 8:46pm.

A gun is accurately aimed at a dangerous criminal hanging from the gutter of a building. The target is well within the gunís range, but the instant the gun is fired and the bullet moves with a speed v(sub0) , the criminal lets go and drops to the ground. What happens? The bullet:

1) hits the criminal regardless of the value v(sub0)
2) hits the criminal only if v(sub0) is large enough
3) misses the criminal.

If you were to draw the triangle, width would be 3m, the height would be 2m, and the hypotenuse would be 2^2+3^2=13?

I don't know how to prove that the bullet will hit the criminal with equations. please help! thank you!
