Your friend's car is parked on a cliff overlooking the ocean on an incline that makes an angle of 20.0° below the horizontal. The brakes fail, and the car rolls from rest down the incline for a distance of 21.0 m to the edge of the cliff, which is 50.0 m above the ocean, and, unfortunately, continues over the edge and lands in the ocean. (a) Find the car's position relative to the base of the cliff when the car lands in the ocean. (b) Find the length of time the car is in the air.

    This is a 2 stage problem. you need first to look at what happens down the slope when gravity is diminished. because it too is acting at an angle down the slop hen when the car falls off the cliff, look at free fall |dw:1442226607285:dw|
