Question

Emily challenges her husband, David, to catch a $1 bill as follows. She holds the bill vertically, with the center of the bill between David's index finger and thumb.

David must catch the bill after Emily releases it without moving his hand downward. If his reaction time is 0.2 s, will he succeed? Explain your reasoning.
