In a 1985 study, cats were trained to jump up and touch a cotton ball in an effort to study their thigh muscles. One cat was able to jump 2.93 meters off the ground.

What is its hang time? In other words, what total time was the cat in the air?

s

What was its initial velocity?

m/s

What was its final velocity?

m/s

Vi and Vf do not equal 0

A = -9.8

D = 2.93 or 5.86

How does this make any sense? Don't I only have two variables (acceleration and displacement) and I need at least three to solve all of the kinematics?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I've used plenty of different equations and can't seem to find anything out.
