1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A tree house has a vertical "fire pole" of smooth metal, designed for quick exits. A child of mass 35.7 kg slides down the pole with constant acceleration, starting from rest. The pole is 3.10m high. The journey to the ground takes 2.00s. a) what is the magnitude of the downward acceleration of the child? b) what is the magnitude of the upward force of friction exerted by the pole on the child? 2. Relevant equations Fnet = ma 3. The attempt at a solution This is what I got so far but I have no idea on how to solve this...any pointers? Fg = 35.7 x 9.8 = 349.86N Umm if its constant acceleration or velocity the Fnet is 0 right?
