    For this problem, imagine that we have a skier on this really steep slope
  • 0:03 - 0:07
    that's 90 meters tall and he comes to this ramp of height 10 meters
  • 0:07 - 0:09
    that makes an angle α with the ground.
  • 0:09 - 0:15
    I want you to tell me using your knowledge of energy and two dimensional motion
  • 0:15 - 0:20
    how far away from the ramp will the skier land--what's this distance d?
  • 0:20 - 0:25
    Measured from where the skier lands to the bottom of the of ramp when he took off.
  • 0:25 - 0:32
    Put your answer here and use 30 degrees for α and use 10 m/s² for g
  • 0:32 - 0:35
    rather than 9.8 just so we're all in the same page.
  • 0:35 - 0:39
    Now, you may end up having to use the quadratic equation in this problem.
  • 0:39 - 0:42
    If you're out of practice with this or maybe you never learned it,
  • 0:42 -
    check for links in the description for help on how to use the quadratic equation to solve this problem.
