## Homework Statement

A skier travels down a slope and leaves the ski track moving in the horizontal direction with a speed of 28 m/s. The landing falls off with a slope of 32 degrees.

a.) How long is the skier airborne? ignoring air resistance

b.) How far down the incline does the jumper land along the incline?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

a.) Since V_x*t=d_x I was going to find how far down the incline the skier lands then solve for two but the order of the questions makes it seem that that is how you solve part. Finding the t value first.

I wasn't really sure where to go with this but maybe finding the interesting point of the slope and the parabolic trajectory of the skier but the only information I have is the slope of the incline so I don't know how to set that up..any help?
