A mountain climber jumps a 1.6 m wide crevasse by leaping horizontally with a speed of 7.0 m/s.

(a) If the climber's direction of motion on landing is -45Â°, what is the height difference between the two sides of the crevasse?

(b) Where does the climber land?

#### Solution Preview

Please refer to the attachment for the diagram.

a) Once the climber jumps, he behaves like a projectile. In case of a projectile, its horizontal velocity remains constant through out its flight as there is no force acting on it horizontally (neglecting air friction).
