Question: 1 general physics problem solving a a sperm whale can...

Question details

1.) General Physics Problem Solving

a.) A sperm whale can accelerate at about 0.0900 m/s2 when swimming on the surface of the ocean. How far will a sperm whale travel if it starts at a speed of 0.800 m/s and accelerates to a speed of 2.18 m/s? Assume the whale travels in a straight line.

b.) A fox locates rodents under the snow by the slight sounds they make. The fox then leaps straight into the air and burrows its nose into the snow to catch its meal. If a fox jumps up to a height of 71 cm, calculate the speed at which the fox leaves the snow and the amount of time the fox is in the air. Ignore air resistance.
