Homework Statement



A man jumps on a trampoline with an angle of 53[tex]\circ[/tex] with respect to the horizontal. What velocity does he need in order to be caught by the other man who is 5.2 m away from him, and 6.1 m above the ground?

Homework Equations



so I guess...

X= 5.2 m
Y= -6.1 m

am I correct?


The Attempt at a Solution



So far, the only thing I've actually understood is..

Vix = Vxcos30[tex]\circ[/tex]
Viy = Vysin30[tex]\circ[/tex]

Can someone please guide me through this?

What do you know about projectile motion ? Why do you use 30° angle? What is Vx, Vy?
