(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Monkey Shoot

1. you aim in a direct line at a monkey hanging on a tree branch with a tranq gun. As soon as you fire, that instant, the monkey lets go. Do you hit the monkey? Prove your calculations through algebra and knowledge of physics

2. Money: D1-D0 = -1/2gt^2

Rifle: D1-D0 = (V0*sintetha)t-1/2*g*t^2

3. ok, I know that the projectile hits the monkey. Because the only force acting on the monkey and the projectile is the force of gravity. So, they both will have the same vertical distance drop. And thus, the projectile and monkey will be at the same location and cause the monkey to get hit. I managed to figure it out by physics, but can someone please explain this to me in an algebra way. Thanks.
