I need help with a problem. In the book, the mass, the elevation of the inclined plane, and the acceleration are given. I am told to find the kinetic Friction coefficient. What equation(s) would I use to solve this problem?
You have to read more of the book than just the problems!
You'll need to understand Fnet = ma; you'll need to identify the forces acting on the mass; you'll need to find the components of those forces parallel and perpendicular to the surface of the plane; you'll need to understand that Ffriction = μN, where N is the normal force.
