[SOLVED] PHYSICS. friction and the inclined plane. PLEASE HELP! i dont understand =\ 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data a skier stands at the top of a slope. the skier is able to remain stationary on a horizontal surface without using her poles. she can remain stationary until there is an incline of 6 degrees. WHAT IS THE COEFFICIENT OF STATIC FRICITON FOR THE SKIER? 2. Relevant equations no relevant equations in notes. 3. The attempt at a solution the solution is clearly impossible because the only information that they give u is 6 degrees.
