A diver in Acapulco jumps off a 150 ft cliff. His forward motion is 10 feet per second. The base of the cliff at the waters edge extends 38 feet beyound the top edge of the cliff. Will the diver land in the water?

  • Physics - ,

    The time to fall H = 150 feet is
    t = sqrt(2H/g)= 3.05 seconds

    The horizontal motion in that time will be
    10 ft/s*3.05 = 30.5 feet

    He will hit the rocks before he hits the water.
