A skier starts from rest at the top of a frictionless incline of height 20.0 m, as shown in the figure. At the bottom of the incline, the skier encounters a horizontal surface where the coefficient of kinetic friction between skis and snow is 0.208. Neglect air resistance.Find the horizontal distance the skier travels before coming to rest if the incline also has a coefficient of kinetic friction equal to 0.208. Assume that θ = 20.0°.

theta= 20
Skiers speed at bottom= 19.8 m/s
m=96.1

x= 96.1/(tan(20))
