Homework Help: Mars gravitation

  1. Nov 27, 2005 #1
    Hello,
    please Can I have some guidance for the problem:

    The heigth achieved in a jump is determined by the initial vertical velocity that a jumper is able to achieve. Assuming that this is a fixed number, how high can an athlete jump on Mars if she can clear 1.85m on earth?

    Thank you

    B

    Hmmm, it seems a pretty straightforward gravitation problem to me. What have you tried so far?
