Ferdinand the frog is hopping from lily pad to lily pad in search of a good fly

for lunch. If the lily pads are spaced 2.4 m apart, and Ferdinand jumps with a

speed of 5.4m/s, taking 0.60 s to go from lily pad to lily pad, at what angle

must Ferdinand make each of his jumps?

Answer:θ = 33°

Explanation:Here, we can use the formula for the total time of flight of a projectile to calculate the launch angle of frog:

where,

θ = launch angle = ?

T = Total time of flight = 0.6 s

g = acceleration due to gravity = 9.81 m/s²

u = launch speed = 5.4 m/s

Therefore,

θ = 33°
