1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A sker reaches a speed of 56 m/s on a 30 degree ski slope. Ignoring friction, what was the minimum distance along the slope the skier would have had to travel, starting from rest? 2. Relevant equations Which equation do i start with? I'm pretty sure i have to find the x-y component of the acceleration but i'm not sure i'm flat out stuck on this problem. 3. The attempt at a solution If i draw a right triangle, and the opposite leg is -9.8 m/s do i use sin30 to find the acceleration down the slope?
