# Coefficient of Friction for a Skier on a Hill

Not what you're looking for?

A skier is moving at 20.0 m/s down a 30 degree slope. He encounters wet snow and slides 145 meters before coming to a stop. What is the coefficient of friction between the skis and the snow?

##### Solution Summary

Newton's law is used to find solution. Calculations are shown.

##### Solution Preview

initial velocity u = 20.0 m/s
along the plane downward accelerating force = m*g*sin(30) = m*g/2
decelerating force = mu*m*g*cos(30) = ...
