A skier approaches the base of an icy hill with a speed of 11.6 m/s. The hill slopes upward at 24° above the horizontal. Ignoring all friction forces, find the acceleration of this skier (a) when she is going up the hill, (b) when she has reached her highest point, and (c) after she has started sliding down the hill. In each case, start with a free-body diagram of the skier.
