A block of mass m = 15.0kg starts from rest and slides down an incline plane with slope angle theta = 45 degrees for a distance d_{1}. It then reaches the flat surface and travels for a distance d_{2}, where it comes to rest. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and all surfaces is the same everywhere with a value of uk = 0.200

Write the Newton's Laws equations of motion and solve for acceleration of the block on the incline plane. Do the same for the block's motion on the flat region. (the question also asks for free body diagrams but I know how to do this)

Given d_{1}= 2 meters, find d_{2}, the distance the block travels on the flat surface before coming to a rest.

2. Relevant equations

Newton's Laws equations? This is the part I don't know

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not sure what equations I need to use...

Thanks for the help in advance! If anyone can provide the equations I think I can take it from there.... thanks!
