1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards takes off on the 90 m ski-jump with a horizontal velocity of 20 m/s. If the gradient of the landing slope is as shown, find the distance L along the slope covered by his jump,ignore any effect of the air on this eagle.

The attempt at a solution So, they have given us the horizontal velocity which is 20 m/s [ E ] and i am not sure what the 90 m represent. Is it the verticle length or is the diameter along the base of the triangle.
