Homework Statement
A man standing on a 15 m high cliff tries to swing on a 12 m rope and lets go at 30° of the horizontal (travelling 150°). He lets go and travels through the air, to then land on the ground.
What is his distance from his landing spot to the base of the cliff?
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
I am able to figure out the equation to find the height from the ground of which he lets go.
Not able to figure out the velocity when he lets go.
There is no mass for him, so those equations are irrelevant. If he is starting at a horizontal angle, then I am unsure of what equations to use to find his velocity.
