Defenestration of Prague". The citizens of Prague threw several representatives of the
Holy Roman Emperor out ofa window 16 meters above the ground. The
representatives landed in a pool of horse manure and survived the fall unharmed.
Assume that the pool of manure was 1 meter deep and estimate the force exerted on one of the falling representatives by the manure. N { O k I 6
