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

an Olympic skier moving at 20.0 m/s down a 30.0 degree slope encounters a region of wet snow and slides 145 m before coming to a halt. what is the coefficient of friction between the skis and the snow?

2. Relevant equations

Force of friction = coefficient of friction x Normal Force

3. The attempt at a solution

d = 145 m

vi = 20.0 m/s

vf = 0 m/s

a = -1.38 m/s2

t = 14.5 s
