While taking a rest on a tree branch, a daring cowboy sees a wild horse running towards the tree he was on. he wants to land on the horses back when it passes under the tree. if the horse is running at a constant velocity of about 2 m/s and the vertical distance between the cowboy and the horses back is about 3m, how far away from the tree should the horse be when the cowboy steps off the tree branch in order to successfully land on the horse.
