Because of your knowledge of physics, you have been hired as a technical adviser for a new

action movie. In

one scene, the hero pursues the villain up to the top of a bungee jump.

The villain creates a diversion by dropping a canister lled with deadly gas. The script calls

for the hero to quickly strap on a 33 meter bungee cord and jump straight down to grab the

canister out of the air just as the bungee cord begins to stretch. You estimate that the hero

can react to the drop of the canister and strap on the bungee cord in 2.0 seconds. Your job

is to determine the feasibility of the stunt by nding the initial speed with which the hero

needs to jump downward to catch the canister.
