Watching my three cats, I’ve noticed that they can, with little effort, jump as high as 4 or 5 feet, from standing still (no running jumps).
Obviously, their hind legs are mighty powerful. Now let’s say you transferred that kind of power to me, a guy who is 6’1". How high would I be able to jump? Would it be the same ratio with respect to a typical house cat’s height? In other words, if a typical house cat is 13 inches tall and can jump up to maximum of 6 feet, would it be the same 6/1 ratio for me? Meaning I could jump around 36 feet in the air? Or would my biology make it different?
