(a) daredevil is attempting to jump his motorcycle over a line of buses parked end to end by driving up a 32° ramp at a speed of 4-0.0 m/s (14-4- km/h), How many buses can he clear if the top of the takeoff ramp is at the same height as the bus tops and the buses are 20.0 m long?

  • physics -

    L=vₒ²•sin2α/g = 40²•sin64º/9.8=146.74 m
    146.74/20 =7.34 => 7 buses
