Homework Help: Physics 12 Kinematics

Posted by Oscar on Friday, November 8, 2013 at 8:47pm.

I'm not really sure how to use the algebra to prove the monkey shouldn't have dropped. Obviously if the hunter aimed the gun directlt at the monkey it wouldn't hit it as gravity would pull it down.

A huntsman fires a gun pointing at a monkey hanging on the branch of a tree. The huntsman and the base of the tree are on a flat horizontal. At the moment the huntsman fires the gun, the monkey will release it's grip on the branch of the tree. Use the initial bullet velocity Vo, horizontal distance Dx, monkey height Dy, and inital trajectory angle above.

a)Show the monkey shouldn't have dropped

b)For what minimum bullet velocity? Vo = (Dx/cos0)(sqrt(g/2Dy))

So I need to show that the monkey shouldn't have dropped when the bullet was fired somehow.... And then I have to find what minimum bullet velocity.

Thank you so much guys..
