You’re a consulting engineer specializing in athletic facilities, and you’ve been asked to help design the Olympic ski jump pictured in Fig. 3.25. Skiers will leave the jump at 28 m/s and 9.5ª below the horizontal, and land 55 m horizontally from the end of the jump. Your job is to specify the slope of the ground so skiers’ trajectories make an angle of only 3.0º with the ground on landing, ensuring their safety. What slope do you specify?

    How does a jump have a launch angle below the horizontal? A picture is a must here.
