## Homework Statement

A 11 kg block slides down a frictionless slope

which is at angle θ = 24◦. Starting from rest,

the time to slide down is t = 1.85 s.

The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .

(look at image)

What total distance s did the block slide?

Answer in units of m.

## Homework Equations

F=ma

F=mg

tan(theta) = Fy/Fx

## The Attempt at a Solution

I calculated the acceleration, a = F/m = 22.01116038m/s^2.

I used the time 1.85sec and the acceleration to find the velocity, v = 40.72064671m/s.

I don't know how to proceed from this point?
