Homework Help: AP Physics

Posted by Henry on Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 2:55am.

A child on a sled starts from rest at the top of a hill and slides down. Does the velocity at the bottom depend on the angle of the hill if:

(a) it is icy and there is no friction?

(b) there is friction (deep snow)?


I'm thinking that the angle will always be a factor, regardless of there being friction, but I'm not sure.
