Problem 6-11 Dynamics with friction - Part 2 - C
A child is sliding down a water slide inclined at \(25^\circ\) to the horizontal. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the child and the slide is \(0.10\). What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the child? (Hint: \(F_N\) is not equal to \(mg\).)
Correct! All choices are permissible but this one gives the simplest solution.
The acceleration in the \(y\)-direction is:
