An athlete executing a long jump leaves the ground at a 32.3 angle and travels 7.84 m. What was the takeoff speed?

If this speed were increased by just 5.0%, how much longer would the jump be?

Neglecting air friction? Right.

vertical component speed=Vsin32.2

time in air..

hf=hi+vv*t-4.9t^2

0=V *sin32.2 t-4.9t^2

t=V *sin32.2/4.9

now, knowing the time in air, distance traveled is

7.84 =V*Cos32.2 * t solve for V given t above.
