**drwls**, Saturday, February 19, 2011 at 4:47pmApply conservation of energy. Neglect the rotational kinetic energy of the wheels, which will make a small difference since the wheels weigh much less than the skateboarder.

(M/2)[V2^2 - V1^2] = M g deltaH

= M g *5.5 sin 19

V1 = 2.9 m/s

Cancel the M's and solve for V2, the final velocity.

V2^2 - (2.9)^2 = 2*9.81*1.791 = 35.13

V2^2 = 35.13 + 8.41

V2 = 6.60 m/s
