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

A student is skateboarding down a ramp that is 6.0m long and inclined at 18 degrees with respect to the horizontal. The initial speed of the skateboarder at the top of the ramp is 2.6 m/s. Neglect friction and find the speed at the bottom of the ramp.

[tex]\Delta[/tex]X = 6 meters

[tex]\theta[/tex]= 18 degrees

v[tex]_{}o[/tex]= 2.6 m/s

v[tex]_{}f[/tex]= ?

2. Relevant equations

v[tex]_{}f[/tex]^{2}= v[tex]_{}o[/tex]^{2}+ 2ax

3. The attempt at a solution

v(f)^{2}= 6.76+ 12a

I have no idea what I'm doing. Could I get a push in the right direction? Thanks.
