1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Gloria, who has mass 60. kg, is skiing on the famous frictionless ski slopes. The slope is making an angle of 30o with the horizontal. How fast, in m/s, will Gloria be going after 10 seconds on the slope?

2. Relevant equations

d = v x t vavg = ½ (vf + vi) vf = at + vi

a = (vf - vi) / t d = vi t+ ½ at 2 vf2 = vi2 + 2ad

d = (vf2 - vi2)/2a

F = ma

Elevator Problems: Fnet = Fapplied + Fgravity

Force at an angle and skier problems: SOHCAHTOA

g = acceleration due to gravity = -10 m/s2;

3. The attempt at a solution

I Identified:

Mass= 60

Time = 10 seconds

Angle = 30 degrees

Then here's my attempt:

Fapplied = cos(60) = Fapplied/600N

Fapplied = 300N

Now what?

Please Help ASAP!
