rvgupta Group Title

A hunter aims his gun and fires a bullet directly at a monkey sitting on a tree at the instant the bullet leaves the barrel of the gun. Will the bullet hit the monkey?

    the bullet will follow the path of parabola that's for sure because of gravity so i think it will not hit monkey unless he is close to monkey so that deflection due to gravity doesn't alter much!

    The bullet won't hit the monkey exactly at the spot the hunter aimed to hit at. (It may not hit the monkey if the hunter has aimed it at some point in the lower part of his body.. It will depend on the distance between the hunter and the monkey and on the height of the target above the monkey's feet) The bullet will hit the monkey accarately, however, if the monkey jumpsthe instant the bullet is fired.

    The bullet will hit the monkey.Same vertical displacement both for monkey and bullet is there.

    simply loved this one! yes the bullet hits the monkey(provided u hit at it with a small velocity) as both suffer the same fall due to gravity in the vertical direction so it would as if the gravity were switched off and the bullet goes right at its target remember the displacement of a body due to gravity is irrespective of its mass s=ut-1/2gt^2 see that monkey falls freely u=0 but banana necessarily has an initial speed u which if made more will make dispalcement less monkey falls greater distance but if we can manage to hit reasonably slow,things can be achieved SEE ATTACHMENT
