In fig.1 (attached), the formula for calculating the angle at which the block will slide down the ramp is tanθ=µ where µ = coefficient of friction.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Will this change if the ramp and block where moving at a constant velocity(V) in the direction shown as per fig.2 (attached)?
