At the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Dwight

Phillips won the gold medal in men’s long

jump with a jump of 8.59 m. If the angle of

his jump was 23°, what was his takeoff speed?

(Treat the jumper as an object; ignore that his

legs are in front of him when he lands.)

L=vₒ²•sin2α/g,

vₒ =sqrt{Lg/ sin2α}=

=sqrt{8.59•9.8/sin46º}=

=10.8 m/s
