Problem 11PE

(a) Calculate the acceleration of a skier heading down a 10.0º slope, assuming the coefficient of friction for waxed wood on wet snow. (b) Find the angle of the slope down which this skier could coast at a constant velocity. You can neglect air resistance in both parts, and you will find the result of Exercise 5.9 to be useful. Explicitly show how you follow the steps in the Problem-Solving Strategies.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 6 (a) The free body diagram for the inclined plane is given below, Step 2 of 6 There is no motion in y axis so we can write the first condition of equilibrium. The normal force from the surface. Step 3 of 6 The object accelerate down the inclined plane, We can write the Newtons second law as taking the downhill to be positive uphill negative.
