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.

    what is "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?

    i think D is ski jump's length

    D should be the range i feel.

    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

    t= {2h/g}^1/2

    this t is time of H time of descent is: 2*t

    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

    hence d is all of horizontally path

    "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

    Yes "D" is the horizontal distance covered.

    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.
