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
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?
