Question

A hunter aims his gun and fires a bullet directly at a monkey on a tree. At the instant the bullet leaves the barrel of the gun, the monkey drops. Will the bullet hit the monkey? Substantiate (give proper evidence to prove the truth of) your answer with proper reasoning.


Solution

Yes the monkey will die providing that at the time of firing, monkey was at the same horizontal level as hunter. It will happen so because, as the bullet was fired, its downward velocity was 0 same as monkey so both will travel same distance downwards and bullet will strike monkey.

the bullet will hit the object as the distance in the vertical direction is same for both the things.

y = gt2/2
