Hello fellow physicists, I am seeking help on the following problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A bicycle is moving over a speed bump at 6.9m/s. Calculate the height reached by the bicycle once it looses contact with the speed bump. Radius of the speed bump is 1.7m and mass of the bicycle is 83 kg. For this problem consider the bicycle as a point mass. Height of the speed bump is 10.2 cm.

You can consider that the bicycle is moving as a projectile once it has lost contact with the speed bump.

Any help much appreciated.
