I need help bigtime.

I need to derive an equation for the coefficient of kinetic friction in terms of the acceleration.

and I need to dervie an equation similar to the one above for the kinetic coefficient of friction of an object sliding down an inclined plane. Thanks.

Could you be more explicit for your first question?

For your third question draw a Free Body Diagram, and apply Newton's 2nd Law for constant mass.
