A skier (m=53.00 kg) starts sliding down from the top of a ski jump with negligible friction and takes off horizontally. If h = 8.00 m and D = 9.50 m, find H.
The Attempt at a Solution
I first divided to vertical distance by 9.81 to get .81seconds, then 9.50/.81 to get the horizontal velocity, which is 11.72 m/s
I then plugged the information into the above equation for
solving for x i got 15.01 m, which is not correct.
