Use the equation s = ut + 0.5at^2
s is the distance the object travels,
u will be the initial speed (releasing the object from rest might be the easiest way)
t is the time the object takes to reach the bottom of the incline,
a is the acceleration for you to find.
Repeat with different values of s and obtain several values of t. Then you can make a graph to find a.
