Safe Slide SpeedI would say go with a slide that is the proper size for your child to be able to control the speed of the slide. Any child under 8 should not use one of the slides that are bigger than five foot. Talk with your child's doctor for more advice. There are toddler slides for toddlers now, I think.

A 21.2 kg child descends a slide 3.5 m high and reaches the bottom with a speed?

The answer depends on the incline (slope) of the slide. And, if you want a more realistic answer, a measure of the friction between the child and the slide.

A 21.2 kg child descends a slide 3.5 m high and reaches the bottom with a speed of 2.1 ms How?

Gravity x length of slide ,+ unknown factors of slide material

Is a Little Tykes slide safe?

Yes, the Little Tikes slide is safe. As long as children are supervised, and are not left alone, the slide is perfectly fun and safe for children.

When does a child on a slide have its maximum kinetic energy?

If the slide has no friction, then at the bottom of the slide. If it does then it's when the child is going the fastest.

How can you slide down the slide faster?

Make the slide steeper Furniture polish on the slide will speed it up.

A 22kg child descends a slide 4.5m high and reaches the bottom with a speed of 2.5ms. How much thermal energy due to friction was generated in this process?

Use conservation of energy to solve this one. Calculate the gravitational potential energy at the top, and the kinetic energy at the bottom. The difference has been lost to friction, i.e., converted to thermal energy.

Are cheap treadmills safe to use by children?

It is impossible to say if cheap treadmills are safe to be used by children, it depends upon the treadmill. If you or a child is using an electronic treadmill which can alternate speed, you must set it to a speed you/they can handle else it wont be safe for anyone.

Is slide a noun?

Yes, the word 'slide' is both a verb and a noun.

Is friction useful when you are on a slide?

if there was no friction on a slide, you would gain speed and slide off and depending on the slide (such as a water slide) kill yourself. too much friction makes it boring.

How safe is the little tikes slide?

The little tikes slide is safe as long as proper supervision by an adult is provided during the use of the slide. It is also important to make sure you follow the age guidelines for proper use.
