written by David Maloney
This item is an annotated homework problem relating to friction. Given the mass of a downhill skiier, initial and final speed of the skiier, and angle of the incline, students must calculate the coefficient of friction between skis and snow.  The author provides explicit, sequential explanations of the steps needed to form a conceptual framework and find a solution.

This resource is intended to supplement classroom instruction and traditional text materials, while allowing students to work at an individualized pace.  It is part of a larger collection of similar introductory physics homework problems.
