The determined coyote is out once more in pursuit of the elusive roadrunner. The coyote wears a pair of Acme

jet-powered roller skates, which provide a constant horizontal acceleration of 11.0 m/s2 (see figure). The coyote starts at rest 75.0 m from the brink of a cliff at the instant the roadrunner zips past him in the direction of the cliff. (a) The roadrunner moves with constant speed. Determine the minimum speed he must have so as to reach the cliff before the coyote. m/s (b) At the edge of the cliff, the roadrunner escapes by making a sudden turn, while the coyote continues straight ahead. The coyote's skates remain horizontal and continue to operate while he is in flight so that his acceleration while in the air is (11.0 - 9.80) m/s2. The cliff is 100 m above the flat floor of a wide canyon. Determine where the coyote lands in the canyon. m (from base of cliff) (c) Determine the components of the coyote's impact velocity. (Assume right is the positive x direction and up is the positive y direction.) vx = m/s vy = m/s
