(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 55kg block is released on a ramp which is frictionless. The ramp is 20 meters long and at the bottom it is moving 8m/s. What is the angle of the ramp?

2. Relevant equations

I am looking for the angle but cannot for the life of me figure it out.

3. The attempt at a solution

I have set out my variables as m=55kg, d=20m and v=8m/s

I drew out a triangle and have no idea how to do it.
