## Homework Statement

A ball is placed at the top of an 8.5 meter slope, which is at an angle of 2.2 degrees. What is the ball's acceleration?

θ of ramp=2.2

length of ramp=8.5

initial velocity (x and y)=0

## Homework Equations

a = (v - v0)/t

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried for 45 minutes to solve this problem. All i could manage to do was find the dimensions of the ramp/triangle, which has side lengths 8.5, 0.32, and 8.49. The angle measures are 90, 2.2 and 87.8.
