Projectile Problem

  1. Oct 13, 2010 #1
    1. A stunt driver wants to make his car jump over eight cars parked side by side below a horizontal ramp. A.) With what minimum spped must he drive off the horizonal ramp? Vertical height of the ramp is 1.5 m above the cars, and the horizontal distance he must clear is 20 m
    B.) If the ramp is now tilted upward so that takeoff angle is 10 degrees above the horizontal , what is the new minimum speed?

    2.Used a lot of different ones.

    3.I got 36.2 m/s for A.) but I can't find B.) at all.

    Help please

    What have you tried so far. If you can do A then B is very similar.

    How much time will it take for the car to reach it's maximum height?
