Batman in Problem

Batman in his Batmobile tries to jump a canyon of width 150 meter. To do so, he drives his Batmobile up an incline sloped at an initial angle of 15 degrees with distance 20 meter from the the beginning of the ramp . But with a twist that every second the ramp comes down with 1 degree. What minimum velocity( in meter/sec.) is necessary to clear the canyon? The ramp has a base of 5 meter. The height & hypotenuse changes dynamically with the change in angle remaining the ramp to be a right angled triangle.

* Note : There is no air or any other kind of frictional forces. There is no change in the velocity of the Batmobile till it launches from the end of the ramp.( Point P ) . Take the Batmobile as a point.Batman has to cover only the 150 meter no more no less. Consider the time taken to reach the ramp and the time taken to travel the distance of the hypotenuse of the ramp. *

Every second the ramp comes down with 1 degree that means in the 1st second the angle will become 14 degree & will remain 14 degree till the 2nd second.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Does the decrease in the hypotenuse come from the end of the ramp or the beginning of the ramp? That is, does the distance batman travels on the ramp increase continuously or does it also decrease some amount each second?
