Tom the cat is chasing Jerry the mouse across the surface of a table 1.4 m above 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 5.8 m/s. Where will Tom strike the floor?
1) figure how long to fall 1.4m
h=1/2 g t^2
2) how far horizontally does the object go in time t? distance=t/5.8
