A flying squid (family Ommastrephidae) is able to "jump" off the surface of the sea by taking water into its body cavity and then ejecting the water vertically downward. A 0.71 kg squid is able to eject 0.29 kg of water with a speed of 20 m/s. (a) What will be the speed of the squid immediately after ejecting the water? (b) How high in the air will the squid rise?
