This is the question I am given:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The largest mincemeat pie ever created had a mass of 1.020 x 10³ kg. Suppose that a pie with this mass slides down a ramp that is 18.0m long and is inclined to the ground by 10.0°. If the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.13, what is the net work done on the pie during its decent.

Ok, we just started this unit. So I know the equation for work. the displacement is 18m and the angle is 10.0°. What do I do to get the net force and how do I make the coefficient come into this problem.
