I am experimentally determining the relationship between the mass of an object and how far it slides from the bottom of a ramp? That would be my X(final) right.

I have to derive a formula between the mass of the object and how far it slides. (need help getting started-tricky) So far from what we have learned there are only three main formulas for constant-acceleration kinematics.

Secondly, I am eperimentally determining the relationship between the angle of the ramp and how far an object slides from the bottom of the ramp.

I also have to derive a formula between the angle of the ramp and how far it slides.

So far, I have beem using sin for y-component. And cos for x-component with given θ. (tricky)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Familair with the three basic equations.
