**1. Homework Statement**

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. Homework 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
