A hunter at a distance dx from a coconut tree points the nuzzle of his gun directly at a monkey sitting on the tree at a height dy. The monkey sees the hunters and drops vertically from the tree at the very instant of firing. Will it be hit by the bullet? Explain.

    depends. Are we considering the monkey a point mass? How far away are the hunters, and how high is the tree? "dx" and "dy" don't help much.
