Homework Help: Simple Question, I hope it is!

  1. Sep 30, 2008 #1
    Okay, so here's the simple question..........I just can't seem to figure out what I am doing wrong so I won't elaborate on what I have done or not done.......

    At the *second an incline rises to 15 degrees, the 100kg box on it begins to slide.

    What is the coefficient of friction?

    *Note: the box does not move until the incline HITS 15 degrees, no more, no less.

    That is the problem verbatim.

    Any help would be great!!!

    Thank You!!!

    I'm afraid you will have to elaborate on what you've done if you wish to receive help. If it is a simple mistake it will be a lot easier for people helping to look at your working.
