A 32 kg child goes down a straight slide inclined 38∘ above horizontal. The child is acted on by his weight, the normal force from the slide, and kinetic friction. How large is the normal force of the slide on the child?

  1. Wc = M*g = 32 * 9.8 = 314. N.

    Fn = 314*Cos38 = 247 N. = Normal force.
