Helpwith Question

  1. Jan 27, 2007 #1
    I am having problem with a question.m I am a beginner with physics and if someone could help me out with showing me the steps in solving the following question. The question falls under the topic the vector nature of forces. The question is as follows:

    A surfer "hangs ten" and accerlates down the sloping face of a wave if the surfs accerlation is 3.25 m/s^2 AND FRICTIOn CAN BE IGNORED what is the angle at which the face of the wave is inclined above the horzontal.

    if someone could please help it would be great!!! it is probably a simple question but I can't figure it out.:bugeye:
