A classic problem of physics. A gun is fired at a monkey hanging from a tree. At the precise moment that the bullet leaves the gun, the monkey lets go of the branch and falls toward the ground. Remarkably, the answer does not depend on the velocity of the bullet. Viewed in a center of mass reference frame, the two objects are moving directly towards each other. Gravitational acceleration effects both just the same.
