- Trouble on this final problem of my physics homework

- Relevant Equations
- M g h + 1/2 mv^2 - (s1+s2)umg=0

h= 1.18sin(28.1) = .55579

When mass M is at the position shown, it is sliding down the inclined part of a slide at a speed of 2.19 m/s. The mass stops a distance S2 = 2.1 m along the level part of the slide. The distance S1 = 1.18 m and the angle θ = 28.10°. Calculate the coefficient of kinetic friction for the mass on the surface.
