## Homework Statement

(1)When mass M is at the position shown, it is sliding down the inclined part of a slide at a speed of 1.95 m/s. The mass stops a distance S2 = 1.85 m along the level part of the slide. The distance S1 = 1.25 m and the angle theta = 35.9 degrees. Calculate the coefficient of kinetic friction for the mass on the surface.

(2)A man pulls a crate of mass 73.0 kg across a level floor. He pulls with a force of 188.0 N at an angle of 31.0° above the horizontal. When the crate is moving, the frictional force between the floor and the crate has a magnitude of 114.0 N. If the crate starts from rest, how fast will it be moving after the man has pulled it a distance of 2.90 m?

## Homework Equations

(1) I'm not really sure how to do 1 at all, I have looked through my book and notes and can't see any solution to the problem

(2) I used the formula Fcos(o)-Uk(mg-Fsin(o))=ma
