Why is the following situation possible?
Emily challenges her friend David to catch a $1 bill as follows. She holds the bill vertically as shown in figure P2.29 with the center of the bill between but not touching David's index finger and thumb. Without warning, Emily releases the bill. David catches the bill without moving his hands downwards. David reaction time is equal to the average human reaction time.
Avg human reaction time is .2s.
Dollar bill is approx 15.5cm in length.
I need help explaining this. Thank you.

accelerates at 1.3 m/s?. You reach the light after accelerating for 4.3 seconds. What is your speed at
the light in m/s?

A fox is chasing a bunny. The bunny is initially hopping east at 6 m/s when it first sees the fox. Over the next half second the bunny changes its velocity to west at 12 m/s and escapes. What was the bunny's average acceleration (magnitude and direction) during this half-second interval?m/s2 ?

- A thief is trying to escape from a parking garage after completing a robbery, and the thief’s car is speeding (v = 11 m/s) toward the door of the parking garage (Fig. P2.60). When the thief is L = 14 m from the door a police officer flips a switch to close the garage door. The door starts at a height of 7 m and moves downward at 0.3 m/s. If the thief’s car is 1.4 m tall, will the thief escape? (Find the height of the door above the ground).

*arrow_forward*An ant crawls on the floor along the curved path shown in Figure P3.4. The ant's positions and velocities are indicated for times tI=0 and tf=5.00 s.

Chapter 3, Problem 4P , An ant crawls on the floor along the curved path shown in Figure P3.4. The ant's positions and Figure P3.4*arrow_forward*My question isn't how to solve the problem exactly. In fact, it's already been solved on this website. My question is about the acceleration. When I solve this problem myself, first I calculate the velocity by dividing 100m by 53s. I get 1.89m/s. Then I use that to find the acceleration using the equation vf = vi + at. That's 1.89/53 = 0.036m/s^2. That's not correct. The correct way to find the acceleration is to us the equation d = 1/2 at^2 and solve that way without taking the intermediate step of finding the velocity. Doing it that way, the acceleration is 0.0712m/s^2. My question is why you get a different result doing it the first way than you get doing it the second way.*arrow_forward* - Hi, I've submitted this question 4 times now and have gotten 4 different results for part b and c.
