Homework Help: Ski jump

  1. Sep 17, 2006 #1
    A ski jumper acquires a speed of 111.4 km/hr by racing down a steep hill. He then lifts off into the air from a horizontal ramp. Beyond this ramp, the ground slopes downward at an angle of q = 45°. Assuming the skier is in free-fall motion after he leaves the ramp,at what distance down the slope does the skier land?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
