A woman is riding a Jet Ski at a speed of 30 m/s and notices a seawall straight ahead. The farthest she can lean the craft in order to make a turn is 20°. This situation is like that of a car on a curve that is banked at an angle of 20°. If she tries to make the turn without slowing down, what is the minimum distance from the seawall that she can begin making her turn and still avoid a crash?
