## Homework Statement

A block is given an initial speed of 6.00 m/s as it slides up an inclined plane that makes an angle of 30 degrees with the horizontal. If the coefficient of kinetic friction is .330, how far up the incline will the block go?

## Homework Equations

I messed around with the equation delta_x = v_initial + .5a*t^2 , not sure how the coefficient of friction works

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried setting a = - 11.3 m/s/s by using trig because of the slant on the horizon, then using the above distance formula to find the maximum distance it traveled. I tried multiplying the coefficient of friction into the acceleration part of the equation, but to no avail. Please help me figure out what I'm doing wrong. Maybe an explanation of coefficient of friction is all I really need, I don't know.
