Answer to Question #96265 in Mechanics | Relativity for Sarah

Question #96265
A ski jumper travels down a slope and leaves the ski track moving in the horizontal direction with a speed of 23 m/s as in the figure. The landing incline below her falls off with a slope of θ = 56◦.The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2. Don't round answer
Expert's answer

Let ski jumper falls at a point which is @$y@$ @$m@$ below the initial point and @$x\ m@$ far from the base.

Then

Slope = @$\frac{y}{x}=\tan56\degree=1.4826@$

So,@$y=1.4826x\ \ \ \ .......(1)@$

From equation of motion

@$x=23t\ \ \ \ .....(2) \\where \ t=time\ of\ flight@$

and ,

@$y=4.9t^2\ \ \ \ .....(3)@$

Putting the value of y and x obtained from (2) and (3) into (1)

The,

@$4.9t^2=1.4826×23t@$

Or

@$t=\frac{1.4826×23}{4.9}=7 \ sec@$

And,

@$x=23t=161\ m@$

And,@$y=4.9t^2=4.9×49=240.1\ m@$
