How high can a flea jump?
it is believed that a flea can jump up to 200 times its own body
Well a flea is quite small (about 5mm) and can jump 100 times its height which makes 500mm which is 50 cm high. A fleas average jump takes about 1.75 seconds but that is for the up and down so you need to divide the number by 2 which makes 0.875 so that makes it's highest jump peak at 50cm so therefor it will only get lower as the time passes on to a second.So…
A flea is able to jump straight up about 0.37 m It has been said that if a flea were as big as a human it would be able to jump over a 100 story building When an animal jumps it converts work done?
Fleas from a dog can jump onto any part of a person that is close enough for the flea to make the jump, so yes they could jump onto your head where they will find a home in your hair. You will then have a flea infestation in your hair. It is very easy for this to happen. If this happens there are special powders or shampoos to git rid of the fleas.
A flea relies on a host (animal or human) to survive. A flea can also jump or travel from animal to animal, human to human, object (like yard grass) to animal or human. At a flea market 'a host' is the person who offers the space for vendors. The metaphor 'flea market' refers to how merchandise 'jumps or travels' from one former owner or owners to another new owner.
