Gone in 60 seconds sofia

  1. 1. [1]
  2. 2. Introduction: “Gone in 60 Seconds” (2000) <ul><li>American action film from the year 2000, a remake of the film from 1974. </li></ul><ul><li>Starring Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie, Giovanni Ribisi, Christopher Eccleston, Robert Duvall, Vinnie Jones, and Will Patton. </li></ul><ul><li>Directed by Dominic Sena, written by Scott Rosenberg, and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. </li></ul><ul><li>The movie was shot in Canada in Hamilton, Ontario, and in the United States in Long Beach and Los Angeles, California. [2] </li></ul>
  3. 3. [2]
  4. 4. Jump scene:
  5. 5. Aim of the Project <ul><li>This is an interdisciplinary project between Algebra and Physics. </li></ul><ul><li>The purpose is to find a jump scene from a movie, analyze it, and prove whether it could be done or whether it was a result of camera trickery. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Hypothesis <ul><li>Fake… </li></ul><ul><li>In my opinion, the jump looks absolutely fake and computerized because you can see it looks like a 3D computer animation. </li></ul><ul><li>At first, the car seems to be going straight with no angle since take-off, considering the angle of the ramp. </li></ul><ul><li>Also, when it lands, the car is basically intact… </li></ul>
  7. 7. Variables <ul><li>Car: 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500 </li></ul><ul><li>Location of scene: Vincent Thomas Bridge, Los Angeles, California </li></ul><ul><li>Initial velocity: 95mi/h or 42.5 meters per second </li></ul><ul><li>Height of ramp: 13ft 6in [6] </li></ul><ul><li>Ramp angle: 70° </li></ul><ul><li>Distance travelled:  118.5 meters </li></ul><ul><ul><li>At first, I calculated the distance based on the beams of the bridge and the length of the car and got 115 meters. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mass: 1860 kg [1] </li></ul>
  8. 8. Angle Speed
  9. 9. Height Distance travelled
  10. 10. Materials <ul><li>Online protractor </li></ul><ul><li>Computer </li></ul><ul><li>Calculator </li></ul><ul><li>Adobe Photoshop </li></ul><ul><li>Formulas given </li></ul>
  11. 11. Procedure <ul><li>The first step was to choose the jump to do the project about and I chose “Gone in 60 Seconds”. </li></ul><ul><li>Then, I started gathering information about the jump; the speed of the car, the angle of the ramp, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>After that, I viewed many times the video to be able to find the height of the jump and the other information that was left. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Data Calculations <ul><li>Speed of the car: 95mph or 42.5 meters per sec. (in the video) </li></ul><ul><li>Distance of the jump: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>42.5 2 sin270°/9.8 = 118.6 meters </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Maximum height reached: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>42.5 2 sin70° 2 /9.8*2 = 81.375 meters </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Data Calculations <ul><li>Acceleration: change in velocity / time taken </li></ul><ul><ul><li>95mph / 8sec.=11.875m/h 2 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mass: 80kg (average man) + 1780kg (weight of car)=1860kg </li></ul><ul><li>Force: mass*acceleration </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1860kg*11.875m/s2=22087.5 N </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Horizontal Motion (Range): 118.5 meters </li></ul><ul><li>Vertical Motion (Height): 81.375 meters </li></ul>
  14. 14. Diagrams
  15. 16. Conclusion <ul><li>The jump is fake. </li></ul><ul><li>My hypothesis was supported by the data when it says that the angle is too steep for the car to have jumped so low from the ground. </li></ul><ul><li>“ The car jump at the end, while extreme, would work if done with a 15 degree ramp at 100mph.” [5] </li></ul><ul><li>If the ramp were less steep and the speed greater, the car would have been able to make the jump, although the distance is too long. </li></ul>
  16. 17. Calculations: 15° ramp <ul><li>Speed of the car: 95mph or 42.5 meters per sec. (in the video) </li></ul><ul><li>Distance of the jump: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>42.5 2 sin215°/9.8 = 105.5 meters </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Maximum height reached: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>42.5 2 sin15° 2 /9.8*2 = 90 meters </li></ul></ul>
  17. 18. Evaluation <ul><li>Many errors could have occurred calculating the data. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of the numbers are estimates that were not shown in the video, for example, the angle of the ramp, the maximum height reached, and the distance travelled. </li></ul><ul><li>Since the video is in slow-motion, it is hard to tell how much time it took from when it took off until it landed, which could have altered my results. </li></ul>
