1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A daredevil motorcyclist attempts to leap a 48m wide gorge. At the side where the cyclist starts, the ground slopes upward at an angle of 15 degrees. Beyond the far rim, the ground is level and is 5.9m below the near rim. what is the minimum speed necessary for the cyclist to clear the gorge? 2. Relevant equations Kinematics Equations s=d/t d= vf(t)-0.5(a)(t)2 3. The attempt at a solution First I just used Pythagorean therm to find Δd. 482+5.92= c2 c= 48.36 Used equation to find time Δd = VfΔt-0.5(a)Δt2 48.36= -0.5(-9.8)Δt2 48.36 = 4.9Δt2 48.36/4.9=Δt2 9.86 =Δt2 + - 3.14 = Δt s=d/t s=48.36/3.14 s=15.4 m/s I think I was suppose to do something with 15 degrees. I got the answer as 15 m/s, but I believe its wrong.
