# Solution for part (a) – Find the magnitude of the flea’s horizontal displacement.

Step | Derivation/Formula | Reasoning |
---|---|---|

1 | [katex] v_{x0} = v_0 \cos(\theta) [/katex] | Determine the initial horizontal velocity component using the horizontal cosine component of the initial speed and launch angle. [katex] v_0 [/katex] is the initial speed and [katex] \theta [/katex] is the launch angle. |

2 | [katex] v_{x0} = 2.1 \cos(21^\circ) [/katex] | Substitute [katex] v_0 = 2.1 \, \text{m/s} [/katex] and [katex] \theta = 21^\circ [/katex] into the horizontal velocity formula. |

3 | [katex] v_{x0} \approx 1.969 \, \text{m/s} [/katex] | Calculate the initial horizontal velocity component. |

4 | [katex] x = v_{x0} \cdot t [/katex] | Using the formula for horizontal displacement, where [katex] t [/katex] is the total time of the jump. |

5 | [katex] x = 1.969 \cdot 0.16 [/katex] | Insert [katex] v_{x0} [/katex] and [katex] t = 0.16 \, \text{s} [/katex] into the displacement formula. |

6 | [katex] x \approx 0.315 \, \text{m} [/katex] | Compute the flea’s horizontal displacement. |

# Solution for part (b) – Find how high does the flea jump?

Step | Derivation/Formula | Reasoning |
---|---|---|

1 | [katex] v_{y0} = v_0 \sin(\theta) [/katex] | Calculate the initial vertical velocity component using the vertical sine component of the initial speed and launch angle. |

2 | [katex] v_{y0} = 2.1 \sin(21^\circ) [/katex] | Plug in [katex] v_0 = 2.1 \, \text{m/s} [/katex] and [katex] \theta = 21^\circ [/katex] into the vertical velocity formula. |

3 | [katex] v_{y0} \approx 0.752 \, \text{m/s} [/katex] | Calculate the initial vertical velocity component. |

4 | [katex] y = \frac{v_{y0}^2}{2g} [/katex] | The formula for vertical displacement due to gravity. Note the final vertical speed of the flea at maximum height is [katex] 0 \, m/s [/katex]. |

5 | [katex] y = \frac{0.752^2}{2 \times 9.81} [/katex] | Substituting values. |

6 | [katex] y \approx 0.029 \, \text{m} [/katex] | Calculate the peak height of the flea’s jump. |

A diver springs upward from a diving board. At the instant she contacts the water, her speed is \( 8.90 \, \text{m/s} \), and her body is extended at an angle of \( 75.0^\circ \) with respect to the horizontal surface of the water. At this instant, her vertical displacement is \( -3.00 \, \text{m} \), where downward is the negative direction. Determine her initial velocity, both magnitude and direction.

A cat chases a mouse across a 1.0 m high table. The mouse steps out of the way, and the cat slides off the table and strikes the floor 2.2 m from the edge of the table. When the cat slid off the table, what was its speed?

A car accelerates from rest with an acceleration of \( 3.5 \, \text{m/s}^2 \) for \( 10 \, \text{s} \). After this, it continues at a constant speed for an unknown amount of time. The driver notices a ramp \( 50 \, \text{m} \) ahead and takes \( 0.6 \, \text{s} \) to react. After reacting, the driver hits the brakes, which slow the car with an acceleration of \( 7.2 \, \text{m/s}^2 \). Unfortunately, the driver does not stop in time and goes off the \( 3 \, \text{m} \) high ramp that is angled at \( 27^\circ \).

Conversion Example

Example of using unit analysis: Convert 5 kilometers to millimeters.

Start with the given measurement:

`[katex]\text{5 km}[/katex]`

Use the conversion factors for kilometers to meters and meters to millimeters:

`[katex]\text{5 km} \times \frac{10^3 \, \text{m}}{1 \, \text{km}} \times \frac{10^3 \, \text{mm}}{1 \, \text{m}}[/katex]`

Perform the multiplication:

`[katex]\text{5 km} \times \frac{10^3 \, \text{m}}{1 \, \text{km}} \times \frac{10^3 \, \text{mm}}{1 \, \text{m}} = 5 \times 10^3 \times 10^3 \, \text{mm}[/katex]`

Simplify to get the final answer:

`[katex]\boxed{5 \times 10^6 \, \text{mm}}[/katex]`
