When mass M is at the position shown, it is sliding down the inclined part of a slide at a speed of 2.15 m/s. The mass stops a distance S2 = 2.5 m along the level part of the slide. The distance S1 = 1.22 m and the angle θ = 32.70°. Calculate the coefficient of kinetic friction for the mass on the surface.
