    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the amount of energy E dissipated by friction by the time the block stops.
    Express your answer in terms of some or all the variables m, v, and h and any appropriate constants.

    2. Relevant equations

    sqrt(v^2 + 2gh)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know it involves the equation for the law of conservation of energy, and the above equation, but the other constants I have not figured out.
