A game room in a rotating space habitat is located in a .25-g region. If a person can jump .5 m high in a 1-g region, how high can the same person jump in the game room?
a. .5m b. 2m c. 4m d. 8m e. more than 8m and why?

  1. If he can jump with some energy E,then
    E= mgh or h= E/mg, so it looks like to me h will change inversely with g, so if it is 1/4 of g, he will go 4 times higher.
