Question

Calculate the deceleration of a snow boarder going up a $5.0^\circ$, slope assuming the coefficient of friction for waxed wood on wet snow. The result of Exercise 5.9 may be useful, but be careful to consider the fact that the snow boarder is going uphill. Explicitly show how you follow the steps in Problem-Solving Strategies.

Final Answer

$-1.9 \textrm{ m/s}^2$
