(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Kinetic Friction !!!

undefined

Ok guYS, Really need help for this... i have been staring at this question blankly...

The ONly solution i came up was to integrate the net acceleration with respect to x. But i what do u get when u integrate acceleration... the answers for part a is 4 m and part b is 3.72m/s.

Qns as follows...

A block is released from rest at the top of a plane inclined at an angle of 45o. The coefficient of kinetic friction varies along the plane according to the relation µk= 0.5x, where x is the distance along the plane measured in meters from the top of the incline. Determine

a. how far the block slides before coming to rest and

b. the maximum speed it attains.

:zzz:
