(?Hint: Think about the hammerhead in Figure 2.5.) Can you think of a reason why you are a little taller in the morning than at night?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 3

Our body wants to maintain its state of motion when we hit the ground after we jump. But, the ground doesn't allow it to. Also, everything in our body wants to maintain its state of motion, including disks.
