## Homework Statement

A 63-kg person on skis is going down a hill sloped at 30° from the horizontal. The coefficient of friction between the skis and the snow is 0.20. What would be the magnitude of the acceleration?

## Homework Equations

f=ma

fg=mg

fnet=mAnet

Ff=μῦFn

## The Attempt at a Solution

I got -102.14, but I'm supposed to put it in as 102.14 right? Because the magnitude is the absolute value of whatever I get..? I found Fnet by subtracting Ff from Fg,x. I got 535.23 for Fn.

PLEASE HELP!? I put in 102.14 on the Webassign but it came back as wrong.

Thank you all!
