Stand up. Jump. When you jump you give yourself a velocity away from the earth. If you have a mass of 80 kg and can jump 1 m high, what is the magnitude of the velocity **in m/s** you imparted to the earth when you left the ground?

**Details and assumptions**

- Treat yourself as a point mass.
- The mass of the earth is \(6 \times 10^{24}\) kg.
- The acceleration due to gravity is \(-9.8~m/s^2\).
