2 dimensional projectile motion

  1. Oct 8, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A stunt driver wants to make his car jump over 10 cars parked side by side below a horizontal ramp. if the horizontal distance is 80 ft and vertical distance is 6 ft., what is the minimum speed must the driver drive off the ramp?

    2. Relevant equations

    vx=v°*cos(θ)
    v°y=v°sinθ


    3. The attempt at a solution
    80/cos45=113
    6/sin45=8.5

    You should look up Kinematic Equations in your book or with google.
