Problem 14.
Given: g = 9.81 m/s^2.
A cat chases a mouse across a 1.2 m high table. The mouse steps out of the way, and the cat slides off the table and strikes the floor 1.9 m from the edge of the table.
What was the cat's speed when it slid off the table? Answer in units of m/s.

Problem 16.
Given: g = 9.81 m/s^2.
A pelican flying along a horizontal path drops a fish from a height of 2.8 m. The fish travels 8.1 m horizontally before it hits the water below. How far would the fish travel horizontally before hitting the water below? Answer in units of m.
