Let board making angle `theta` with the horizontal .In t=2 seconds rolled over a distance S = 1.3 m.

We ignore the size of the ball, which can slow down the ball.

Let g=acceleration due to gravity = 9.8 m/s²
a=acceleration down the board
=g sin(θ)
u=initial velocity=0 

S=1.3 m    

t = 2 sec
`s=ut+(1/2) g t^2 sin(theta)`     (i)

differentiate (i) with respect to t

`(ds)/(dt)=u+g t sin(theta)`

But `(ds)/(dt)=speed =v`  (say)

put u=0

`v=g t(.0663)`          , put value of g


v alog y -axis and t along x-axis.
