So if you were to slide a box-like object down a straight ramp with a single gradient (its literally just an incline no curve). And you attempt to model it accurately would this be correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Given the DE

ma=mg-kv

where a=dv/dt, mg=force of gravity, kv= force of friction

Anyway my main question, is k the coefficient of kinetic friction? Does k=μ????
