The snowmobile is travelling at 10m/s when it leaves the embankment at A. The angle that the snowmobile leaves its elevated jump is 40 degrees. Determine the time and flight from A to B and the range R of the trajectory.

The slope of the mountain is a 3-4-5 triangle.

2. Relevant equations

y=y_0+10sin40(t)-.5(9.81)t^2

R=10cos40(t)

3. The attempt at a solution

I wasn't sure how to get the height, range, and time(in the air) using only the equations of projectile motion.
