Question

The froghopper,

Philaenus spumarius, holds the world record for insect jumps.

When leaping at an angle of 58.0° above the horizontal, some of the

tiny critters have reached a maximum height of 58.7 cm above the

level ground. Neglect air

resistance

in answering the following. (a) What was the takeoff speed

for such a leap? (b) What horizontal distance did the froghopper cover

for this world-record leap?
