A skier is gliding along at 3m/s on horizontal frictionless snow. He suddenly starts down a 10 degree incline. His speed at the bottom is 15 m/s.

a) what is the length of the incline?

b) how long does it take for him to reach the bottom?

we know:

Vo=3m/s

Vf=15m/s

t=?

x=?

a=?

2. Relevant equations

V^2=Vo^2 +2ax

3. The attempt at a solution

i need help to find what the a is...and why it is that.
