# Surfer Acceleration: Wave Inclination Angle

Chapter 5, Problem 26P

(choose chapter or problem)

QUESTION:

A surfer "hangs ten," and accelerates down the sloping face of a wave. If the surfer's acceleration is $$3.25 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}^{2}$$ and friction can be ignored, what is the angle at which the face of the wave is inclined above the horizontal?
