the diver acheives a horizontal velocity of 3.75 m/s from a diving platform located 6.0 m above the water. How far from the edge of the platform will the diver be when she hits the water?

  • physics -

    Do the vertical problem. (Assume no vertical speed at start)
    How long to fall 6 m?
    6 = (1/2) g t^2 and g = 9.8
    t^2 = 6/4.9
    t = 1.11 s
    now do the horizontal problem
    goes 1.11 s at 3.75 m/s
    so 4.15 meters
