A person decides to jump a canyon. The walls are equally high and 10 meters apart. He takes off by driving a motorcycle up a short ramp sloped at 11 degrees. What minimum speed must he have to clear the canyon?

2. Relevant equations

I don't know if these are correct or not

(Time in Air)

h= Vyt + 1/2gt[itex]^{2}[/itex]

(distance)

d= Vxt

Vx= Vcos11

Vy= Vsin11

Other Formulas

V[itex]^{2}[/itex]f= V[itex]^{2}[/itex]i + 2ad

3. The attempt at a solution

my sad attempt lol

Vi=?

Vf=?

h=?

d= 10 meters

angel= 11 degrees

g(or a)= 9.8m/s[itex]^{2}[/itex]

(Time in Air)

h= Vyt + 1/2gt[itex]^{2}[/itex]

h= Vsin11t -4.9t[itex]^{2}[/itex]

(Distance)

d= Vxt

10= Vcos11t

Am I thinking this through right? Or am I way off??
