(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Imagine a block sitting on an inclined plane rather than a flat surface. The angle Ө made by the plane relative to the horizontal can be changed. We could determine the coefficient of kinetic friction by inclining the plane (increasing Ө) until the block slides at a constant velocity once started with a small push. Derive the expected relationship between the angle at which this happens and the coefficient of friction.

3. The attempt at a solution

My understand of physics is very slim. However, from what I believe, as the the angle increases, the coefficient of friction will also increase. I'm not even sure if this is what the question is even asking...

Please, help.
