A 400g lemming waddles horizontally off a small 4.9m high cliff with a horizontal

velocity of 0.5m/s.

a. How far from the base of the cliff will the lemming land?

b. What will be the lemmings speed just before landing?

c. What is the lemmings kinetic energy just before landing?

a. (0.5 m/s)*(fall time)

b. sqrt[(g*(fall time))^2 +0.5^2]

c. (M)[gH + (0.5)^2/2]

where the "fall time" is sqrt(2H/g)

H = 4.9 m

g = 9.8 m/s^2

M = 0.4 kg

Crank it out.
