we are working at an assembly plant making wooden toy giraffes. At the end of the line,the giraffes go horizontally off the edge of the conveyor belt and fall into a box bellow.If the box is 0.6 m below the level of the conveyor belt and 0.4 m away from it,what must be the horizontal velocity of giraffes as they leave the conveyor belt? thank you

  1. Calculate the time it takes to fall 0.6 m. Call it T.
    0.6 m = (1/2) gT^2
    Solve for T.
    The horizontal distance where it falls (X = 0.4 m) is the conveyor belt horizontal velocity V, multiplied by T
    Solve for V.
    V = X/T
