## Homework Statement

A skier leaves the ramp of a ski jump with V=10.0 m/s at 15° above the horizontal. Slope of mountain below ramp is 50°. Assuming air resistance is negligible, find distance from end of ramp at which skier lands.

## Homework Equations

1. sf = si + vi

_{s}t + ½a

_{s}t

^{2}

2. tanΘ = y(t)/x(t)

3. Vix = VicosΘ

4. Viy = VisinΘ

## The Attempt at a Solution

See attachment below. I'm fairly confident in my working yet I know 27.8m isn't correct. I'm having difficulty finding my mistake though. I'm hoping someone else is more eagle-eyed.
