Question

In a movie scene: "Katrina is thrown off a cliff by villains. Salman has to save her but he jumps one second after she falls." He still saves her since his weight is much more than that of Katrina. Assuming that the day was non-windy, it is possible that Salman will save Katrina.

Solution

The correct option is A False
Whenever two bodies, which start together, are in free fall, irrespective of their weight, they have the same acceleration (g) and hence fall on the earth at the same time. But in the movie scene, Katrina starts her free fall one second earlier than Salman. Also, we neglect air resistance since it was a non-windy day. Hence, we can safely say that the given scene is physically impossible since Katrina will fall one second before Salman.
