1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 75.0 kg mass sits on an inclined plane, and a rope passing over a pulley at the top connects it to a hanging 125 kg mass. The pulley is frictionless and its mass is negligible. The coefficient of friction between the 75.0 kg block and the plane is 0.143. The system is released from rest, and after dropping 8.75 m, the 125 kg mass is moving at a speed of 8.00 m/s. What is the angle of inclination of the plane from the horizontal? 2. Relevant equations Not entirely sure if these are correct... μ = F /N KE = ½ mv2 PE = mgh 3. The attempt at a solution[/b Okay...apparently this is a transcendental equation???? Ive tried using the formula μ = F /N above and I'm coming out with two missing variables. I'm just completely stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
