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

Would constant velocity down a slope be achieved by a cart, by having the frictional force equal to that of Wsinθ (Where W is the weight force and θ is the angle between the slope and the horizontal).

2. Relevant equations/3. The attempt at a solution

For example if θ was equal to 15 and W was equal to 19.

Then to achieve a constant velocity the frictional force would need to equal approximately 4.92 N.

Or am I going in the wrong direction with this?

Any help is appreciated and please excuse any ambiguity within this post.
