Need help with Vertical Velocity!! I have an exam tomorrow >.< I went to a tutor yesterday to get it all worked out, but I forgot to write down D in my notes! How do I solve for D? I have the answer, but no equation to work it. You jump horizontally with a speed of 2.7 m/s off a diving board that is 2.6 meters above the water. (Neglect air resistance and use g = 9.8 m/s2) (a) How long are you in the air? 0.73 s (b) How far away from the diving board (horizontally) do you hit the water? 1.971 m (c) What is your horizontal speed when you hit the water? 2.7 m/s (d) What is your vertical velocity when you hit the water? (Define up as the positive vertical direction). -7.252 m/s I am thinking D is solved with Dy=Voy T + (1/2)Ay T^2=Voy T- (1/2)gt^2. I just figured out that the y's and the x's are referring to vertical and horizontal, but I am slightly confused on the process.
