    I just thought of this beautifully ugly question I just perceived and need to make it ...
    it will be on an M3 familiar scenario ...
    A particle will be slightly disturbed from the top of a surface whose cross section is in the shape of ( ...have not decided on the curve yet ...)
    Find the distance the particle travels until the instant it leaves the surface

    I will put hyperbolics and arclengths ...
    sounds like a nightmare

    Yay we solved exactly the same way Wonder if there is another way?

    I swear I didn't copy yours or anything - I simply tried all the SUVAT equations that allowed me to manipulate  \frac{y}{x}.

    I think there might be one using calculus and differentiating a function of displacement. I was looking to do that, but it'd give me way too many variable to take care of!

    No not accusing you I was happily surprised I used the same method as someone with such expertise in solving forum questions :3

    Hmm interesting - wonder if someone else will attempt like that

    Not sure if mine is particularly different to your two's, but it's attached anyway.

    Hahahaha, I just looked over yours and saw that it's pretty similar. Did you use a calculator though? Flattery will get you nowhere by the way

    I think using energy also looks feasible now that I think about it. TeeEm will probably use something cooler than SUVAT

    Nah no calculator - hence why it took a while to compute the tan(theta + pi/6) haha

    Very nice observation that it occurs at maximum height. I could never attempt it without a diagram, though.

    I did have a diagram on the other side I just didn't scan that side since it was a scrap of paper and so was full of a load of random scribblings.
