4.53. Model:Use the particle model for the cat and apply the constant-acceleration kinematic equations. Visualize:Solve:The relative velocity of the cat from the mouse’s reference frame is 0(4.0cos301.5) m/s1.964 m/sv°−==Thus, 001.964 m/sxvv==and sin30(4.0 m/s)sin302.0 m/sy=°=°=. The time for the cat to land on the floor is found as follows: 22211100101011()0m0m(2.0m/
