1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The cliff divers of Acapulco push off horizontally from rock platforms about 35 m above the water, but they must clear rocky outcrops at water level that extend out into the water 5.0 m from the base of the cliff directly under their launch point. What minimum pushoff speed is necessary to clear the rocks? How long are they in the air? 2. Relevant equations Yf = Yi + Vt + 0.5(9.81)t^2 3. The attempt at a solution I'm having trouble relating time to the x & y components because I cannot see how the velocity is found.
