The Monkey and Hunter

Posted on January1,2011 by Arbor Scientific, authored by Arbor Scientific There have been 0 comments

When studying projectiles, students learn that the vertical and horizontal components of motion are independent. The classic problem to illustrate that concept is that of the monkey and the hunter. In this live demonstration, a projectile is aimed at an elevated target. Launching the projectile causes the target to simultaneously fall from its perch. Students can observe firsthand that the projectile does in fact strike the target.
