A pelican ﬂying along a horizontal path drops

a ﬁsh from a height of 6.0 m. The ﬁsh travels

7.7 m horizontally before it hits the water

below.

What was the pelican’s initial speed? The

acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s

2. If the pelican was traveling at the same speed

but was only 1.6 m above the water, how

far would the ﬁsh travel horizontally before

hitting the water below?
