Physics

A boy starts at rest and slides down a frictionless slide as in the figure below. The bottom of the track is a height h above the ground. The boy then leaves the track horizontally, striking the ground a distance d as shown. Using energy methods, determine the initial height H of the boy in terms of h and d.
