A hunter aims his gun directly at a monkey hanging from a high tree branch some distance away. At the instant the gun is shot the monkey drops from the branch, hoping to avoid the bullet. Show analytically, using variables, that the monkey made the wrong move.

2. Relevant equations

Linear motion equations

3. The attempt at a solution

My attempt wasent much, i have no clue where to start with it. I wrote out a list of variables of what i got out of the equation

GUN

vertical Horizontal

V1 = 0m/s V1 = 0

V2 = V2 =

a = -9.8m/s^2 a =

t = T t = T

d = Dgv d = Dgh

Monkey

V1 = 0

V2 =

a = -9.8m/s^2

t = T

d = Dm

So i figured that time was the same for all the lists, but this is absically how faar i got, i have Dm = 4.9T^2 and thats about it. I dont know where to go from here. Any help is greatly appreciated.
