You are the stunt director for a testosterone-laden action movie. A car drives up a ramp inclined at 10.0° above the horizontal, reaching a speed of 40.0 m/s at the end. It will jump a canyon that is 101 meters wide. The lip of the takeoff ramp is 201 meters above the floor of the canyon. (a) How long will the car take to cross the canyon? (b) What is the maximum height of the cliff on the other side so that the car lands safely? (c) What angle with the horizontal will the car's velocity make when it lands on the other side? Assume the height of the other side is the maximum value you just calculated. Express the angle as a number between −180° and +180°.
