Consider a grey squirrel falling out of a tree to the ground. (a) If we ignore air resistance in this case (only for the sake of this problem), determine a squirrel’s velocity just before hitting the ground, assuming it fell from a height of 3.0 m. (b) If the squirrel stops in a distance of 2.0 cm through bending its limbs, compare its deceleration with that of the airman in the previous problem.

Step-by-step solution 35PE Step 1 of 6 The formula to find the final velocity of the squirrel is, Here is the final speed, is the initial speed and is the distance.
