Chryiss I did actually! And yes it’s pretty cool! I’m reminded of The Birds movie. XD I bet someone could create an updated version of some scary thriller with crows now.
Well, if you want another one here it is!
Did you know that kangaroos' movement isn't jump, they salt. Saltation, Hopping, or Leaping is different from jumping.
It describes jump this way: "If you jump, you bend your knees, push against the ground with your feet, and move quickly upwards into the air."
You remain perfectly in one direction, Which is vertical direction or upwards/downwards. So, Uniformly Accelerated Motion in Vertical Dimension is applied here. You enter a state of freefall, which of the gravity pull of the Earth is a constant 9.8m/s2
By the way, Their jumping height is awesome too.
Red kangaroos regularly leap 5ft (1.5m), and their highest jumps are said to be around 10ft (3m). That is about on a par with impalas, but not as high as the bounciest hares and jackrabbits.
If you compare it to a human, Here's what it would look like:
The average vertical jump for men falls between 16 to 20 inches while it is around 12 to 16 inches for women. A good vertical jump is one that's over 2 feet for males and over 20 inches for females. To excel however, men need to get over 28”, while women over 2 feet high.
Converted 1 Meter = 39.37 Inches = 3.28084 Feet
Well, that's crazy. I can't even jump 2 meters, Let alone 1.5 meters.
And it describes leap this way: "If you leap, you jump high in the air or jump a long distance."
Now you have a Trajectory, Velocity in what your'e doing. That kind of motion is called Projectile Motion, Which is a form of motion experienced by an object or particle (a projectile) that is thrown near the Earth's surface and moves along a curved path under the action of gravity only (in particular, the effects of air resistance are assumed to be negligible). A parabolic motion, Which relates to the Newton's laws of motion. Assume that you are a projectile, But there's no gravity, Does your speed increases or remain constant?
My point got derailed along with the topic ಥ⌣ಥ. But in short, Kangaroos' just move. I want to see a Kangaroo appearing in a novel, Why do bears, cats, lions, and bats only appear in these novels, RIP kangaroo.
I spent so much time in these useless things.
Already forgotten this particular subject.
