Sample Free Response Problem An eagle is flying horizontally at 8.0 m/s with a fish in its claws. It accidentally drops the fish. How much time passes before the y -component of the fish’s velocity is also 8.0 m/s? What is the fish’s speed at this time? Sketch the situation, defining all your variables. What physics equation(s) will you utilize in order to solve this problem? For each equation you list, give a justification for why it applies to this situation. Apply your equation(s) to solve, first for an algebraic expression(s), then for any numerical answer(s). Show the units of your answer(s), and how you got them. Present your work clearly and neatly.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
