Question

A Hollywood daredevil plans to jump the canyon shown in the figure on a motorcycle. There is a 15. m drop and the horizontal distance across the canyon is 61.2 m. If he desires a 3.1-second flight time, what is the correct angle for his launch ramp (deg)? What is his correct launch speed? What is the correct angle for his landing ramp (give a positive angle below the horizontal)? What is his predicted landing velocity. (Neglect air resistance.)

Hollywood daredevil plans to jump the canyon shown in the figure on
a motorcycle. There’s is a 15 m drop and the horizontal distance
across the canyon is 69.2 m. If he desires a 2.9 second flight
time, what is the correct angle for his launch ramp (deg)?
What is his correct launch speed?
What is the correct angle for his landing ramp?
What is his predicted landing velocity?

A daredevil college professor wants to jump across a canyon of
depth 100 m and width 50m on his motorcycle. He uses a ramp
inclined at 60 degrees to cross the canyon. The other side of the
canyon is 10 m lower than his side. (a) Find the minimum velocity,
v0, that his motorcycle should have to make it safely across the
canyon. (b) Find the final velocity (when the professor lands on
the other side) (c) Find the angle...

A Motorcycle Jump. You are planning to make a jump with your
motorcycle by driving over a ramp that will launch you at an angle
of 30.0o with respect to the horizontal. The front edge of the ramp
on which you are supposed to land, however, is 25.0 ft lower than
the edge of the launch ramp (i.e., your launch height). (a)
Assuming a launch speed of 65.0 mph, at what horizontal distance
from your launch point should the landing...

A man on a motorcycle plans to make a jump as shown in the
figure.
If he leaves the ramp with a speed of 38.5 m/s and has a speed
of 36.1 m/s at the top of his trajectory, determine his maximum
height (h) (in m) above the end of the ramp. Ignore
friction and air resistance.

Q: A dirt-biker is leaving a mud jump with a velocity of
"v" at an angle of 0 above the horizontal. Air resistance is
negligible. *Assume right and up are positive, and left and down
are negative*

1. A motorcycle stunt rider wants to jump a 123 m wide canyon.
She arranges a ramp on one side so she will be launched at
40o above the horizontal. What is the minimum speed she
will need to reach the other side? Assume she lands at the same
height as she started.
a) 25 m/s
b) 35 m/s
c) 45 m/s
d) 55 m/s
(answer is 35 m/s, I want to know the steps to solve the
problem. )

The current world-record motorcycle jump is 77 m, set by Jason
Renie. Assume that he left the take-off ramp at 20° to the
horizontal and that the take-off and landing heights are the same.
Neglecting air drag, determine (a) his take-off speed, (b) what is
the maximum height and (c) the time of the jump?

It is generally a good idea to gain an understanding of the
"size" of units. Consider the objects and calculate the kinetic
energy of each one.
