**drwls**, Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 11:39amAt the bottom of the slope, he will have acquired a velocity of

V = sqrt(2gH) = 8.04 m/s,

and this will be aimed horizontally. This velocity gets lowered to V' when the picks up the backpack, since lineat momentum must be conserved.

V'*(62 + 20) = V*(62)

V' = 6.08 m/s.

Multipy that by the time t' that it takes to fall vertically 2.0 m from the ledge, and you will have the answer, X.

t' = sqrt(2*2.0/g)= 0.639 s

X = 6.08*0.639 = 3.88 m
