**drwls**, Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 1:16pmHer mass is M = Weight/g = 51.0 kg

Her initial velocity, from her initial kinetic energy E (equal to work done), is

Vo = sqrt(2 E/M) = 3.13 m/s

The horizontal distance X that she travels is related to her "takeoff angle" A by the equation

X = 2.5 = (Vo^2/g)*sin(2A)

which leads to

2.5 = 1.00 sin (2A)

There is no angle 2A (or A) that satifies this equation. She does not have enough initial kinetic energy to jump that far. You may have copied something wrong
