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?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 5:06 pm ad1c9bdddf
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) = ...
Newton's law is used to find solution. Calculations are shown.
