Homework Help: Friction help

  1. Nov 13, 2004 #1
    i've been trying to figure this question out for about half an hour now and i'm still where I started. if some one could help me i'd be much obliged.

    a 17 kg box is released on a 35 degree incline and accelerates down the incline at .270 m/s^2. Find the friction force impeding its motion. How large is the coefficient of friction?
