1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In a hardware store, paint cans, which weigh 46N each, are trasnported from storage to the back of the paint department by placing them on a 24 degree ramp. The cans slide down the ramp at a constant speed of 3.4 m/s onto a table made of the same material as the ramp. How far does each can slide on the table? 2. Relevant equations mgsin(x) = component of gravity in the same dimension as the incline on which the object sits KE = mv²/2 ΔKE = Fd 3. The attempt at a solution 46sin(24) ≈ 18.7 -(46/9.8)(3.4)²/2 = -18.7d d ≈ 1.5 My problem is if the friction force were equivalent to the force of gravity down the incline, the the paint cans would never move.
