Problem: A snow-covered ski slope makes an angle of 35.0° with the horizontal. When a ski jumper plummets onto the hill a parcel of splashed snow is thrown up to a maximum displacement of 1.50 m at 16.0° from the vertical in the uphill direction as shown in Figure P3.28. Find the components of its maximum displacement (a) parallel to the surface and (b) perpendicular to the surface.
