(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Assuming that f=mu(N), show that the cofficient of (rolling) friction for the

car moving down the inclined plane with a constant speed is given by

mu=tan(theta) - m2/mc cos(theta)(Use symbols, not numbers.)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Can someone explain any of this so I can understand what they are asking.

I can't get started because I don't really understand it.

Thanks,

Kevin
