*** Title says static - need kinetic friction!!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the amount of kinetic friction. A block with mass of 0.422kg slides down a ramp from rest. Given: acceleration = 1.58m/s^2, mass = 0.422kg, theta = 29.0°, velocity two (end): 1.7m/s, and total time is 1.10s. I also need to find the coefficient of friction.
