# Mars gravitation

1. Nov 27, 2005

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?
