The angle of the slide

you too

what must be known to figure out the angle of the slide to the hill?

a slide is on a hill. the slide sits at a 10 degree slope. a 113.5 kg mass accelerates down the slide at 3 m/s squared. the coefficient of friction is .13.

what do i need to figure out here before finding the angle?

thanks

What is the equation to calculate the force of friction on the object?

What is the force of gravity pushing down the slide?

From here, you should be able to get an equation with the angle of the hill as your only unknown
