A 48 kg skier starts from rest at a height of H = 28 m above the end of the ski-jump ramp. As the skier leaves the ramp, his velocity makes an angle of 28 with the horizontal. Neglect the effects of air resistance and assume the ramp is frictionless.

(a) What is the maximum height h of his jump above the end of the ramp?
(b) If he increased his weight by putting on a backpack, would h then be greater, less or, the same?
