Two crickets, Chirpy and Milada, jump from the top of a vertical cliff. Chirpy just drops and reaches the ground in 3.50 s, while Milada jumps horizontally with an initial speed of 95.0 cm/s. How far from the base of the cliff will Milada hit the ground?

Solution 11E 2 For each cricket,a =x and a =9.y m/s For Chirpy,v =ox=0 oy For Milada,v =ox950 m/s and v =0 oy Milanda’s also reaches the ground in 3.50 s so her horizontal component of velocity has no effect on her vertical motion To find the distance ,we have equation x-x 0 v t0xat 1 2 2 =0.95×3.5+0 =3.32 m
