In a scene in an action movie a person is being chased across a roof top. To escape, the person runs off the edge of the building and falls to the roof of a nearby shorter building. The tall building is 50m high, the short building is 40m high and there is a 5m gap in-between the buildings.
a. Draw a vector diagram to describe this situation.
b. Ignoring air resistance, what is the minimum velocity the person must be running at to safely land on the shorter building?
c. What is the magnitude of the velocity of the person when they land on the smaller building?
