**1. Homework Statement**

A stunt driver wants to make his car jump over 8 cars parked side my side below a horizontal ramp. (a) With what maximum speed must he drive off the horizontal ramp? The vertical height of the ramp is 1.5m above the cars and the horizontal distance he must clear is 20m. (b) What is the new minimum speed if the ramp is now tilted upward, so that "takeoff angle" is 10 degrees above the horizontal, and nothing else is changed?

**2. Homework Equations**

I have worked out the answer to part (a), with a speed of 36.166 ms-1 leaving the horizontal ramp.

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I have a few queries... If the ramp is 10 degrees sloped, does that mean the ramp is taller than 1.5m or is it sloped so that it is at the same height? I'm lead to assume its still 1.5m as everything is the same.

Please Help!
