# A 60 kg skier is in a tuck moving straight down a 30° slope. Air resistance pushes backwards on the skierwith a force of 10 N (applied opposite the direction of the skiers motion and parallel to the 30° slope).The coefficient of dynamic friction between the skis and the snow is 0.08. What is the resultant forceacting on the skier?
