Problem 25CQ

many times higher could an astronaut jump on the Moon than on Earth if his takeoff speed is the same in both locations (gravitational acceleration on the Moon is about 1/6 of g on Earth)?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 5 The equation for the height an astronaut can jump is . Here initial velocity is and is finial velocity. Step 2 of 5 Since astronaut jump to highest point, so here finial velocity is zero, and take off velocity or initial velocity is same. Therefore, the maximum height astronaut can jump on the Earth is, Comment Step 3 of 5 The maximum height an astronaut can jump on the moon is, Comment

Step 4 of 5

Step 5 of 5
