Problem Title: Comparison of methods for calculating vertical jump height in sport
Course Level: Second-year undergraduate.
- Describe the principles behind calculating jump height from impulse and from flight time
- Apply the impulse-momentum relationship and relevant equation of motion separately to calculate jump height from net impulse and from flight time
- Explain the potential limitations of each approach and their implications for the accuracy of the calculation.
