Homework Help: Acceleration down a ramp given mass and friction

  1. Feb 26, 2016 #1
    A 3.55 kg object is on a 33 degree incline. Static friction = 0.614. Kinetic = 0.220. Find the acceleration of the body.

    I just need help setting up the equation.

    hi kmerr:

    I suggest as a first step: draw a diagram which shows all the forces and makes clear the objects the forces act on.
