A ski-jumper comes off ramp with speed 10 m/s at angle 16° above horizontal. He hits the snow at point 30 m below point he took off. Slope is designed to make perfectly soft landing, what should be the angle of the slope where he hits? (neglect air resistance) (hint:(from book)find direction of velocity vector when he hits the snow)
for ease of use we round gravity to -10m/s
Vy=(10 m/s)*(sin 16°)
The Attempt at a Solution
That's as far as I can get without getting confused/overwhelmed. I'm thinking I need to find Δt so I can get the x displacement. But as far as what to do next???
