A freestyle skier hits the take off ramp with an initial velocity of 17.5 m/s with a purely vertical take off (90 degrees). What is the peak height that the skier will reach?

  • physics - ,

    Rise time = (17.5 m/s)/g = 1.79 s
    Vertical distance travelled
    = (Vaverage)*t
    = (1/2)(17.5)(1.79)
    = 15.6 meters
