# The Bunny Hop

1,348 views

The highest a rabbit has ever jumped is 99.5cm in Denver on June 28th, 1997. to convert that into meters the measurement would be .995cm. from this information I gathered I also know that at the moment the bunny began to jump the initial velocity was 0m/s. also, since the bunny jumped on Earth I know its vertical acceleration had to be 9.81m/s^2 due to gravity. From all this information I can find how long the rabbit was in the air for. By using my three variables, I can use the d=vit+1/2at^2. Because initial velocity is 0 I can get rid of vit and make the equation equal to time since that it was I am solving for. My new equation to get time is t=2d/a all under a radical. Next, I substitute my three variables- initial velocity, distance, and acceleration, with the numbers a units and plug this into my calculator to get 0.45 seconds. Since the rabbit went a distance of .995cm up and had to come back down, I have to multiply the time by two. This leads my final result of the world record rabbit hop to be .9 seconds in the air!

It is so cute that you were able make a bunny be a story and example to physics. What was your inspiration for writing on this topic?

I saw a stuffed animal bunny duh

I love bunnies!

so cute and clever al
