Coefficient of kinetic friction and constant velocity

  1. Aug 15, 2010 #1
    How to find the degree of inclination if there is only coefficient of kinetic of friction is given & a constant velocity?

    the coefficient of kinetic friction between a wooden box and an inclined plane is 0.30. At what angle will the box slide with a constant velocity once set in motion?

    At constant velocity, the resultant force is zero.

    So what are the forces acting on the box?
