**Steve**, Monday, June 10, 2013 at 6:00pmthe velocity has horizontal and vertical components

Vx = 20(√3/2) = 17.32

Vy = 20(1/2) = 10.00

The horizontal and vertical positions of the ball are thus

sx = 17.32t

sy = 10.00t - 4.9t^2

So, the x-y function of the height is

y = 10.00(x/17.32) - 4.9(x/17.32)^2

= -0.01633x^2 + 0.5774x

The ground is descending with slope = -2/5 so the surface is given by

y = -2/5 x

So, where does the parabola intersect the line?

-0.01633x^2 + 0.5774x = -0.4x

x = 59.85

y = -23.94

so the distance down the slope is

d = √(59.85^2 + 23.94^2) = 64.46 m
