I need to find the frictional forces and a snowboarder going off of a cuved jump. I know the coefficient of friction for the snow and the snowboarder is .05. The veolcity as the snowboarder is coming into the curved jump is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

sqrt(2(9.8*100*sin(theta))-(.05*9.8*100*cos(theta)))

I know the veolicty would have to do with centripetal motion but I dont know how to take friction into account to this because the normal force is always changing witht he curved surface.
