## Homework Statement

Two guys are sitting in a cart. At point C, they jump off to avoid the cliff below.

How long in time(total) will it take the guys to go from Point A to C?

How long will it take them to roll from A to B, and from B to C?

## Homework Equations

t = square root[2*(l)/(g)(sinө)] <-- given equation for measuring time taken for object to go down an inclined plane

## The Attempt at a Solution

Given the equation, I found that time taken from A to B is about 11.46s, using the formula and the given values: 123m, g = 9.81m/s^2, and 11 degrees. For the part where there is a flat surface, I am confused as to how to determine time. I found out velocity from A to B to be 10.69m/s using d/t. Would I be able to use this velocity and the second distance given to find time between B to C?

**Is the velocity of the cart constant from point B to C, seeing that it doesn't stop when reaching the edge of the cliff?**
