A driver needs to drive her car across a 180m long canyon. The side of the canyon opposite his starting point is 40m lower than the side that he's starting on. His initial speed is 50 m/s. At what smallest possible angle should a ramp be built so that he makes it across the canyon.

\[V_{iy}=V_{i}Sin\theta\] \[V_{ix}=V_{i}Cos\theta\] \[y=40m\] \[x=180m\] \[V_i=50(m/s)\] \[\theta?\]

\[y = V_{iy}t+(1/2)at^2=>40=V_{iy}t4.9t^2\]

\[V_{iy}=V_iSin\theta=50Sin\theta\] \[40=50(Sin\theta)t4.9t^2\] \[x=V_{ix}t+(1/2)at^2=V_{ix}t=>180=50(Cos\theta)t=> t=18/(5Cos\theta)\]

After I plug in the value of t into: \[40=50(Sin\theta)t4.9t^2\] differentiate and solve for t, i get a crazy answer. Does anyone know why?

What was the equation that you differentiated? 40=180Tan(theta)  63.5(Sec(theta))^2 ?

I don't think differentiation is required

just write sec^2(theta) as 1+tan^2(theta).

40 = 180Tan(theta) 63.5(Sec(theta))^2 and just solve for theta right?
