Range =10.0 m
Hmax=3.0 m
we use motion in y direction
Vfy2=Voy2=2gy
0=Voy22×9.8×3.0Voy2=58.8=7.66 ms
we have range R=Vx×
We find 1st time use 2nd equation ofmotion
y=ut+12>2
3=0+12×9.8t2t=34.9
So Vx=Rt=100.782=12.78 ms
So finally speed |v|=Voy2+Vx2
|v|=(7.668)2+(12.78)2
|v|=14.9 ms
2) angle θ=tan1(VoyVx)
θ=tan1(7.66812.78)=36.9
θ=36.9
The speed of the mountain lion as it leaves the ground is 14.9 m/s.
The mountain lion leaves the ground at 36.9°
