1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is the terminal speed for an 85.0 kg skier going down a 44 degree snow-covered slope on wooden skis μ= 0.060? Assume the skier is 1.7m tall and .50m wide 2. Relevant equations v = sqrt(4μmg/A) 3. The attempt at a solution The area of the skier is (1.7m*.5m)=0.85m^2 sqrt (4(.06)(85)(9.8)/0.85) = 15.34 m/s I tried to find velocity along the slope by calculating 15.34/sin(44) and got 22.08 m/s. This is wrong. I think it's because either I messed up my original vectors or I assumed normal force is equal to gravity which wouldn't be true on the slope (or probably both). I'm not sure how to find normal force or factor it into the problem.
