Q:

1) The Earth's surface, where g= 9.80 m/s squared
An Olympic skier coasts down a slope with an angle of inclination of 38 degrees. A)Neglecting friction, how many forces are acting on the skier? B) What is the acceleration of the skier? C)If the skier has a speed of 5.2 m/s at the top of the slope, what is his speed when he reaches the bottom of the 36 m long slope?

2)The Earth's surface, where g= 9.80 m/s sqaured .
A horizontal force of 41 N acting on a block on a frictionless, level surface produces an acceleration of 2.6 m/s squared.
A second block, with a mass of 4.1 kg , is dropped onto the first. What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the combination of blocks if the same force continues to act?

(Assume that the second block does not slide on the first block.)
