Sam (85 kg) takes off (from rest) up a 50 m high, 10° frictionless slope on his jet-powered skis. The skis have a thrust of 180 N. He keeps his skis tilted at 10° after becoming airborne.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i understand the whole concept, but i dont understand how to get the acceleration, the frictionless keeps confusing me.

please help me out, it would be greatly appreciated.
