A man reached a speed of 372 km/h on his motorcycle. Suppose the man drives off a horizontal ramp at this speed and lands a horizontal distance of 40.0 m away from the edge of the ramp. What is the height of the ramp, neglecting air resistance?
First we need to convert the speed into
The horizontal component of velocity is constant so we can say:
Time = distance/speed =
To get the vertical height we can use:
