Homework Help: Finding kinetic coefficient of friction (pulley involved)

  1. Sep 26, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A wooden block with mass 0.1305kg is sitting on a horizontal dynamics track. The block is attached to a counterweight of mass 0.050kg by means of a frictionless pulley (the counterweight is hanging off of the table). The system is released from rest, and after traveling 0.8 meters, the velocity of the block is 0.5767 m/s. Calculate the coefficient of kinetic friction

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution


    Can someone please help??
    Thanks in advance :)
