The current world record motorcycle jump is 77.0 meters set by Jason Renie. Assume that he left the take off ramp at 12.0 degrees above horizontal and that the take off and landing heights are the same. Neglecting air resistance,deteremine his take-off speed

• PHYSICS -

D = (V^2/g)sin(2A)

2A = 24 degrees. D = 77.0 m
solve for V

He could have gone farther with a steeper angle. Maybe it would have been harder to land.
