A stunt motorcyclist has to jump across a river 7.0 m wide from a ramp on one side with incline of 10 degrees. (a) What minimum speed the motorcycle must have to successfully land on the opposite side of the river? (b) How long will the motorcyclist be in the air? (Assume equal elevation on the both sides of the river, ignore air resistance)
The Attempt at a Solution
I have no idea how to go about this, I've tried going through all of the kinematic equations with the 2 variables given. I'm assuming the extra information given after part (b) also relates to part (a) otherwise it would be impossible to solve? So my understanding is that there are 2 ramps on either side of the river, both of which have an incline of 10 degrees or am I misinterpreting the question?
