1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A skier on a slope inclined at 4.7 degrees to the horizontal pushes on ski poles and starts down the slope. The initial speed is 2.7m/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction between skis and snow is 0.11. Determine how far the skier will slide before coming to rest.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

Vf^2=Vi^2+2ad

0 =2.7^2+2ad

after this i am lost??

Please help..
