tom the cat is chasing jerry the mouse across the table surface at 1.5 m high, jerry steps out of the way and tom slides off the table at 5m/s. Where will tom hit the floof and what are the velocity components just before impact

  • physics -

    1.5 = 4.9t^2
    t = .55s

    Vy = -9.8(.55) = -5.39
    Vx = 5.00

    Tom will hit the floor at x=5(.55) = 2.75

    assuming the +x direction is the direction of travel across the table.
