    (a) A skier is accelerating down a 30.0 degree hill at 4.30 m/s^2. What is the vertical component of her acceleration? (m/s^2 (downward))

    (b) How long will it take her to reach the bottom of the hill, assuming she starts from rest and accelerates uniformly, if the elevation change is 330 m? (s)
