Tom the cat is chasing Jerry the mouse across a table surface 2.4 m oﬀ the ﬂoor. Jerry steps out of the way at the last second, and Tom slides oﬀ the edge of the table at a speed of 2 m/s.What speed will Tom have just before he hits?

• science -

Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2g*d,
Vf^2 = 0 + 19.6*2.4 = 47.04,
Vrf = 6.86m/s.
