A squirrel is resting in a tall tree when it slips from a branch that is 43 m above the ground. It is a very agile squirrel and manages to land safely on another branch after only 0.47 s. What is the height of the branch it lands on?

  • Physics -

    Δh=gt²/2 = 9.8•0.47²/2 =1.08
    h=H – Δh =43-1.08=41.92 m
