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.

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.
