Homework Help: physics

Posted by Tom on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 3:46am.

A trained dolphin leaps from the water with an initial speed of 12 m/s. It jumps directly towards a ball held by the trainer a horizontal distance of 5.50 m away and a vertical distance of 4.10 m above the water. In the absence of gravity the dolphin would move in a straight line to the ball and catch it, but because of gravity the dolphin follows a parabolic path well below the ball’s initial position. If the trainer releases the ball the instant the dolphin leaves the water, show that the dolphin and the falling ball meet.
