A coin slides down a ramp angled at 30? with respect to the horizontal. If the coin starts from rest, what is its speed in m/s after sliding 1 m?

Hi [color=#0000BF]eddybob123[/color], I assume that friction is ignored. Since a slide of 1m drops 0.5m due to the 30 degree slope, the speed is: I can show the derivation if desired.
