Cat falling from a tree

  1. Dec 9, 2004 #1
    cat is climbed to the branch, holding to it with its paws. Cat is 8 m from ground. It starts falling. The question is that how fast must he rotate its tail for him to land on feet? Moment of inertia of its body is 50 000 g*cm^2 and moment of inertia oh his tail is 5 000 g*cm^2.
