Solution: Since you know the angle and the magnitude of the launch, than it is possible to use trigonometric functions to solve for the magnitudes of the x and y velocities. Vy= .52m/s Vx= 4.97 m/s
X-Variables Y-Variables Up Y-Variables Down
Vo=4.97 m/s Vo=.52m/s Vo=0
V= 4.97 m/s V=0 V=?
A= 0 m/s^2 A= -9.81 m/s^2 A=9.81m/s^2
T= .458 sec. T=.053 sec. T=.405 sec.
ChangeX=2.28m ChangeY= .014m ChangeY=1.614m
Using the big 3 equations we can solve for the unknown variables.
From this data we see that I traveled 2.28 meters during the ollie off the ledge in the model.
