.............| 1.48 meters high

________|_______________________(must land here)

.............|------21.1 meters--------|

A stunt driver wants to make his car jump over a distance of 21.1 meters below a horizontal ramp

With what minimum speed must he drive off the horizontal ramp? The vertical height of the ramp is h = 1.48 m above the ground and the horizontal distance he must clear is d = 21.1 m.

What is the new minimum speed if the ramp is now tilted upward, so that "takeoff angle" is 11.6° above the horizontal, and nothing else has changed.

Can someone please give me some tips on how to start on these 2 problems?

Thank you very much for your help
