A small fish is dropped by a pelican that is
rising steadily at 0.61 m/s.
After 3.2 s, what is the velocity of the fish?
The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s2.
Answer in units of m/s

How far below the pelican is the fish after the
3.2 s?

  • physics -

    Are we supposed to assume that the pelican is flying straight up? I have never seen a pelican do that.

  • physics -
