Ok, tired of looking thru google and not finding what I'm after. I'm looking for the formula/s that would be relevant for downhill skateboarding. I know the basic of(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); speed=distance divide by timeand the formula for finding grade, but what I'm trying to find out is what would be one's average speed on an hill. Example:distance of road, ft. drop between elevations, weight of rider. (1.5mile, 555ft btwn elev,200#) I would like to have this one handy, so I can find out what speeds one could acheive on various roads. I'm also putting a graphics package together and would like to include formulas that are relevant to downhill skateboarding.

Any help would be very much apperciated!

Thank you
