Homework Help: Mechanics Problem

  1. Aug 4, 2011 #1
    Hey there. I am taking a course in Mechanics, and was assigned a homework quiz. I just need some assistance with the following problem. It reads:

    A particle of mass 1kg begins at rest on the surface of an inclined plane with inclination angle of 30degrees. If the vertical height of the particle is originally 3.17 meters, what is the velocity of the particle (in meters per second) when it reaches the bottom of the inclined plane? (You may assume there is no friction between the particle and the surface of the plane). Recall that g ~ 9.8m.s-2 in computing the answer.

    Many thanks
