a skier starts at the top of a 30m hill ta an anle of 20 degrees. the skier goes straight down the firctionless slope. How long will it take the skier to get to the bottom?

  • physics 20 -

    The distance that he has to ski is
    D = 30m/sin20 = 87.7 m

    The acceleration component down the slope is g sin 20 = 3.35 m/s^2

    D = (1/2)*(3.35) t^2 = 87.7 m
    t^2 = 52.35 s^2
    t = 7.2 seconds
