b) When the skateboarder reaches the highest point, how far is this point horizontally from the end of the ramp?

**bobpursley**, Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at 3:43pmbreak the initial vertical velocity into vertical, and horizontal components

vertical Viv=6.5sin59

horizontalVih=6.5cos59

at the highest point, the vertical velocity will be zero.

vf=viv-g*t

t=viv/g

now use that time in

h(t)=hi+viv*t-4.9t^2

how far?

distance=vih*t
