we are working at an assembly plant making wooden toy giraffes. At the end of the line,the giraffes go horizontally off the edge of the conveyor belt and fall into a box bellow.If the box is 0.6 m below the level of the conveyor belt and 0.4 m away from it,what must be the horizontal velocity of giraffes as they leave the conveyor belt? thank you

  • science -

    Calculate the time it takes to fall 0.6 m. Call it T.
    0.6 m = (1/2) gT^2
    Solve for T.
    The horizontal distance where it falls (X = 0.4 m) is the conveyor belt horizontal velocity V, multiplied by T
    Solve for V.
    V = X/T
