Since it is a wet bar of soap, I assume there is no friction. If we draw the forces diagram, we found that there is a resultant force of the normal reaction N and the gravitational force F=mg and that F=mgsin(alpha). That force is equal to F=ma, therefore mgsin(alpha)=ma=>a=gsin(alpha). From the equation t=sqrt(2x/a), we get that t is approximately 1,8 seconds. Keep in mind that this is actually independent of the mass of the body.
ohhhh i did F=mgcos. could you explain why it's sin? also thanks
no the answer is infact 1.8 ...

ohhh i see, i calculated a y component for gravity as well which doesn't really exist in this case. well anyway, thanks! :)
