Problem 24PE

60.0-kg skier with an initial speed of 12.0 m/s coasts up a 2.50-m-high rise as shown in Figure 7.40. Find her final speed at the top, given that the coefficient of friction between her skis and the snow is 0.0800. (Hint: Find the distance traveled up the incline assuming a straight-line path as shown in the figure.)

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 3 According to the work energy theorem, Here is the initial kinetic energy of the skier, is the work done by the non-conservative force (friction), is the final kinetic energy of the skier and is the potential energy of the skier at the top of the rise.
