A 10 kg block of ice slides down a frictionless ramp that goes from a ledge 10 m above the ground to the ground. The ramp is at an angle of 20 degrees with respect to the ground. What is the speed of the ice (in m/s) by the time it gets to the ground. Don't include units in the answer.

As there in no friction, all potential energy of block is converted into kinetic energy
So by energy conservation : M*g*h = 1/2 * m * v^2
9.8 * 10 = 0.5 * V^2
V^2=186
V = 13.63
