Physics 140, Fall 2010, Midterm 1 Problem 3: A rabbit is chased by a fox and attempting to escape maintains a constant speed as it traces the path shown from A to C. Which of the arrows best represent the velocity and acceleration of the rabbit at point B ? Problem 4: You are on the roof of the Dennison Building, 49 m above the ground. Your physics professor, who is 1.80 m tall, is walking alongside the building at a constant speed of 1.6 m/s. If you wish to drop a rotten tomato on your professor’s head, where should the professor be from the point directly below you when you release the tomato?
