Lecture 7 Slide 2 Department of Physics, University of Arizona Example: Jumping over a row of cars (horiz. platform) A stunt driver drives off a horizontal platform 1.5 m above the roofs of a row of cars 20 m long. What is the minimum velocity at the platform required to clear this row of cars? 1.5 m 20 m v 0 =? gy v v v gt t v y y gt v v v t v x v v x y y y y y y y x x x 2 : y vs. : t vs. : t vs. and : eqns 2 0 2 2 2 1 0 0 0 0 - = - = - = = = Equations (origin at end of platform): Know: v 0y = 0; final values x = +20 m and y = - 1.5 m Want: v 0x v 0 = ?
