## Homework Statement

A 15 kg box is placed at the top of a 5.0 m long, frictionless ramp inclined at an angle of 37

^{o}. How long does it take the box to reach the bottom of the ramp?

so the acceleration at the direction of the slope is 3/5g then it's all about mathematics imho. it doesn't really matter how much it weighs tbh, since it's frictionless.

Draw a triangle and break the force of gravity into components using trigonomoetry. Knowing the distance and force you can find acceleration which you can use to find time.
