    A skier is accelerating down a 30 degree hill at 3.80 m/s^2. Draw a convenient XY coordinate system, then determine:

    a) What is the vertical component of her acceleration?

    b) How long does it take her to reach the bottom, assuming she starts from rest and accelerates at a constant rate, if her elevation change is 355m?
