1. Complete Question

A skier leaves a ski jump with a horizontal velocity of 29.4 m/s. The instant before she lands three seconds later, the magnitudes of the horizontal and vertical components of her velocity are: Group of answer choices

A 29.4 m/s; 29.4 m/s.

B 41.6 m/s; 41.6 m/s.

C 29.4 m/s; 41.6 m/s.

D 0; 29.4 m/s.

E 29.4 m/s; 0.

Correct option is A

Explanation:

From the question we are told that

The horizontal velocity is

The time taken for the jump is

The velocity along the vertical axis is

substituting values

During the jump the horizontal velocity remains the same as there was a direction change

So the correct option is  A
