Your friends car is parked on a cliff overlooking the ocean on an incline that makes an angle of 18.9 (degrees) below the horizontal. The brakes fail, and the car rolls from rest down the incline for a distance of 26.7 m to the edge of the cliff, which is 82.4 m above the ocean, and, unfortunately, continues over the edge and lands in the ocean.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the cars position relative to the base of the cliff when the car lands in the ocean.

I'm not quite sure how to attempt this problem

- I think you bust the problem up into 2 parts

- I know you have to find the velocity of the car right before it falls off the cliff. Then from there treat it as a projectile question.

- I also know that I will have to break the problem down into its x and y components

If you could help walk me through this problem it would be much appreciated

- I deff don't want anyone to give a final answers

- just help walk me through the problem step by step so that I can understand whats going on

I just have no clue how to get started or the equations to use

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
