For this problem, imagine that we have a skier on this really steep slope
2
00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:07,000
that's 90 meters tall and he comes to this ramp of height 10 meters
3
00:00:07,000 --> 00:00:09,000
that makes an angle α with the ground.
4
00:00:09,000 --> 00:00:15,000
I want you to tell me using your knowledge of energy and two dimensional motion
5
00:00:15,000 --> 00:00:20,000
how far away from the ramp will the skier land--what's this distance d?
6
00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:25,000
Measured from where the skier lands to the bottom of the of ramp when he took off.
7
00:00:25,000 --> 00:00:32,000
Put your answer here and use 30 degrees for α and use 10 m/s² for g
8
00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:35,000
rather than 9.8 just so we're all in the same page.

00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:39,000
Now, you may end up having to use the quadratic equation in this problem.
10
00:00:39,000 --> 00:00:42,000
If you're out of practice with this or maybe you never learned it,

00:00:42,000 --> 99:59:59,999
check for links in the description for help on how to use the quadratic equation to solve this problem.
