(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A skier skiing downhill reaches the bottom of a hollow with a velocity of 20m/s, and then coasts up a hill with a 10° slope. If the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.10, how far up the slope will she travel before she stops?

2. Relevant equations

aΔt=v2-v1

d= 1/2(v1 + v2)∆t

d=v1Δt + 1/2aΔt^2

v2^2=v1^1 + 2ad

F=ma

μ=Ff/Fn

3. The attempt at a solution

d=20^2 / 2(9.8)(sin10)(0.1)

I tried to substitute for a in a formuala I found online that worked previously for stopping distance on a horizontal plane.
