A skier (m=57.0 kg) starts sliding down from the top of a ski jump with negligible friction and takes off horizontally. If h = 6.20 m and D = 13.4 m, find H.

    Use the energy method. Decrease in potential energy= gain in kinetic energy mg(H-h) = 1/2 mv^2 here we get the velocity. After taking off, the range is given by R= u. t where "t" is the time of descent and 'u' is the velocity.

    (1/2)mv^2=mgD so v=sqrt(2gD) v on above is v0 for next part of ask (when skier leave ski jump) y=(v0^2/2*g) so H=y+h

    isn't "d" the distance covered after he jumped?

    Let us take D to be the range. Now, decrease in potential energy would be mg(H-h) as he came down a height of H-h So, mg(H-h) = 1/2 mv^2 v=(2g(H-h))^1/2

    how did you take v=u in two formula? mg(H-h) = 1/2 mv^2 R= u. t

    D= v. t where v= [2g(H-h)]^1/2 and t= [2h/g]^1/2 "t' is the time of descent from "h" to the ground. I typed u instead of v

    u is velocity of body when it's arrive to ground but vis velocity in top of path

    no i think you use 2*t in formula for D

    "v' is the velocity of the man before taking off. We are not concerned about the velocity which he will have while landing on the ground

    When a body takes off horizontally, the height from which it took off will be the maximum height. i took that the person slides from a height "H" and after reaching a height "h', he takes off and covers a horizontal distance 'D". I mistyped u or v.
