If a ball is sliding down a ramp that is on a slant, so that the ball sliding down falls off. Is the speed of the ball constant(meaning staying at the same speed)? or Speeding up? If so, how?

The horizontal distance H is given. So the height h1 of the face from the observer's instrument = H tan(32&deg;) The height h2 of the top from the observer's instrument = H tan(35&deg;) So the height of the face is h2-h1.
