Homework Help: physics

Posted by ajo on Sunday, December 9, 2007 at 4:23pm.

At the end of the semester, you are loading your gear into a van to go home. In loading the van, you can either lift a 45.0-kg crate straight up(method 1) or push it up a 3.00-m-long ramp that is inclined at an angle above the horizontal (method 2).In both methods, the crate is moved at a constant speed and the vertical distance from the ground to the floor of the van has the same value h. In method 1, no friction is present. In method 2, however, a frictional force does -485J of work on the crate. In applying your nonconservative pushing force to the crate, you do twice as much work in method 2 as in method 1. Find the angle.

Can anyone please give me some hints to do this?THANKS A LOT!
