A daredevil decides to jump a canyon. It's walls are equally high and 13 m apart. He takes off by driving a motorcycle up a short ramp sloped at an angle of 18°. What minimum speed must he have in order to clear the canyon?

  • physics -

    Use range equation:
    d = [v^2(sin2theta)]÷g
    18 = [v^2(0.58778)]÷9.8
    (18 x 9.8)÷0.58778 = v^2
    v^2 = 216.745
    v = 14.722 m/s

    Hope this helps :)
