A skier (m=55.00 kg) starts sliding down from the top of a ski jump with negligible friction and takes off horizontally. (A)If h = 6.80 m and D = 10.20 m, find H.(B)Find her total kinetic energy as she reaches the ground.

2. Relevant equations

KEi+PEi=KEf+PEf (law of conservation of energy)

KE=1/2mv^2

PE=mgh

3. The attempt at a solution

I somehow have to find the total Height and the final Velocity. I can't seem to come up with an equation that doesn't have one of those in it.....Any help would be greatly appreciated.
