1) how fast must the cat launch to achieve the jump shown? 2) how is the cat able to achieve this jump? Be sure to cite energy/power concepts as appropriate.
Also, can the following equation be used to help with this question?
The final equation Here's the final equation to calculate distance traveled using the variables we've already calculated: D (distance) = (.5) * a (acceleration) * t (time)2 + V0 (initial velocity) * t time
