Ayoung owl forgets how to fly for a moment and is free falling towards the ground. before crashing, he remembers how to fly and goes back to his nest to rest!
what can we say about the owl as it falls?
group of answer choices
the owl has a constant velocity while falling.
the owl will hang motionless in the air until he remembers to flap his wings.
the owl has an acceleration of -9.8m/s2 while falling.
the owl slows down as he falls.
did you figure it out
The correct answer is C. The owl has an acceleration of -9.8m/s².
This is because the gravitational acceleration on earth is equal to -9.8m/s².
A is incorrect because, the longer you fall the faster you fall. (Gaining velocity).
B is also incorrect because.. you're falling. If the owl somehow forgot how to fly, he's not going to stay in the same place while trying to remember; he's going to drop.
D is definitely incorrect because the owl is not slowing down, you're gaining velocity and moving faster
Hope this helps,
in order to follow the instructions and complete the statements, i need to use data from table c of your student guide. can you think of a way to let me see your student guide for a while ? i can't answer the question without the data in table c.
