The Bunny Hop



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! :goodjob:

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?
