When the Sun is directly overhead, a hawk dives towards the ground with a constant velocity of 5.1 m/s at 45° below the horizontal. Calculate the speed of its shadow on the level ground.

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

Given: Velocity = 5.1 m/s

               Angle = 45o

Find: Speed of its shadow on the level ground

Step 2

The shadow that will be projected on the ground will give us the hawk's horizontal position. Thus, it will move at the hawk's horizontal velocity component.

Step 3

Thus, the horizontal velo...
