A stunt man drives a car at a speed of 19.3 m/s off a 32.8 m high cliff. The road leading to the cliff is inclined upward at an angle of 19.3°. How far from the base of the cliff does the car land?

What is the car's impact speed?

What is the angle of impact?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

First i divided my initial speed into components so i got Vx=6.38m/s and Vy=18.22m/s

I started with the y-direction:

d= v1t+0.5at^2 <---- i solved for time using inital speed at 18.22m/s

I got t= 1.86s

I then moved to the x-direction:

I used v= d/t with v= 6.38m/s

I got d= 11.87m

This answer is wrong however i dont know where i went wrong and what i should do to correct it. I didnt get a chance to move on to the other questions either. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
