What are the factors that affect the change of the acceleration? (is it mass and friction?)

Is there a formula for this?

The result is [tex]a = g\sin\theta[/tex]

It is (a) independent of mass, (b) constant in time, and (c) is derived assuming that only weight and normal force act on the body.

If a friction force, with a kinetic coefficient of friction [tex]\mu[/tex] opposes the motion then the expression becomes

[tex]a = g(\sin\theta - \mu\cos\theta)[/tex].
