Problem 58P

An Errand of Mercy.? An airplane is dropping bales of hay to cattle stranded in a blizzard on the Great Plains. The pilot releases the bales at 150 m above the level ground when the plane is flying at 75 m/s in a direction 55° above the horizontal. How far in front of the cattle should the pilot release the hay so that the bales land at the point where the cattle are stranded?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Lecture 27: “Mane Points” o Ancestor of domesticated cattle o Earliest evidence of a pre-domestication  Human-cattle relationships shown in cave art of Western European hunter-gatherers Ancestor of Cattle o Aurochs – over 6ft at shoulder (prey pathway) o Bos (genus) is OW animal; after ice age moved into temperate zones of OW o Mostly extinct by 3,000 BP (very small remnant population in Poland until 1600’s) o 2 aurochs  Taurine cattle (West Asia/ European)  cow  Indicine cattle (India)  zebu (humped) o No remains of Bos ever discovered in NW; brought over with Spanish Prey pathway o ~14,000 BP hunter-gatherers hunted aurochs o ~12,000 BP game/herd management o ~12,000 BP beginning of domestication o ~8,500 BP full domestication in west Asia Aurochs o Pre-domestication  Hunter for meat, horns, hides, sinews o Two caves: Altamira & Lascaux o Altamira cave: (Northern Spain) discovered in 1879; dated to 14,000 BP – hunter-gatherers  Great hall shows 20 adult aurochs in a herd with males at the periphery – like during mating seasons; shows them in mating positions  Aurochs are always in herds, some life-sized  depicted animals that naturally range together: bovines, horses
