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

A 50 kg block slides down a 32° ramp with an acceleration of 3.2 m/s2.

What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the ramp?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\mu[/tex]_{kinetic}=[tex]\frac{f_{kinetic}}{F_{normal}}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I have gone through many attempts, but all of them just don't seem right...could someone please explain it plain and simple?
