Honors physics dynamics question?

  • #1
A rope is used to pull a 100 kg crate up a 25 degree, 3 meter long ramp. The tension in the rope is 850 N and the sliding friction along the ramp is 360 N. If the velocity of the crate at the bottom of the ramp is 1 m/s, how long does it take for the crate to make it to the top?

What would the free-body and calculations look like and what would the final answer be? Please try to be as detailed as possible, even if that means being repetitive or stating the obvious. I'm having a lot of trouble with understanding this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, carcinojenn.

What have you attempted so far? What are you assuming? Where do you get stuck?

People will be more willing to help if you show that you have attempted a solution. :)
