## Homework Statement

A car is parked on an incline of 15.6 degrees below the horizontal, the brakes fail and it rolls down the incline 27.5m and off the edge of a cliff that is 57m above the ground. Find the car's position when it its the ground relative to the base of the cliff.

## Homework Equations

rather than type them all out, I'll just say kinematics.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know you have to break the gravity vector up into components so I took -9.8 sin(15.6) = -2.63 m/s^2. I keep calculating the average speed of the car, not the speed at the point it goes off the cliff. Please help, thanks!
