Tom the cat is chasing Jerry the mouse on a table. Jerry puts on the brakes and stops and Tom continues right off the edge of the table at 4.00 m/s. If it takes Tom 0.50 seconds to hit the ground, then the table is approximately ____ meters high and Tom hit the ground a horizontal distance of ____ meters from the table"s edge. (Note: Numbers are randomized numbers and likely different from the numbers listed here.)
