A tiger leaps horizontally from a 15.0 m high rock with a speed of 7.10 m/s. How far (in meters) from the base of the rock will it land?

  • physics -

    how long does it take to fall 15m?

    h=1/2 g t^2 solve for t.

    then, distancewenthorizontal: 15*time

  • physics -

    is g negative or positive, because that is what i did and the answer is still wrong!

  • physics -

    final position is -15. g is -9.8m/s^2.
    the negative direction is up to you. You decide on the frame of reference. Most choose up as positive, downwards as negative.

  • physics -

    so h is 15, g is 9.8

    15= 4.9t^2
    then take the square root of 3.061. then do i multiply by 15?
