1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Coefficient of friction of a flat belt and of a vee belt

2. Relevant equations

I know the lap angle, m2, T2, T1/T2 and ln (T1/T2) for the flat belt and lap angle, m2, T2, T1/T2 and ln (T1/T2)

3. The attempt at a solution

I attempted to find it by plotting a graph using the lap angle and ln(t1/t2) but i don't think that is correct

Hello CMC, welcome to PF !

Could you be a bit more elaborate ? What is the complete problem statement, what variables occur, which ones are known/given, what relevant eqautions do you have in your toolbox, what precisely have you done and why do you think that it isn't correct ?

On all counts you make it very difficult to assist you in a sensible way; please try again. Perhaps read the guidelines, too.

To determine the coefficient of friction of the flat and V belt when used with the steel pulley, and to determine the effect of lap angle on the torque that can be transmitted for a given flat and vee belt drive arrangement.

Well, what equations do you have available, what is your attempt at solution so far ?
Is there a textbook, lecture notes, the web ?
