Homework Help: physics

Posted by Alura on Monday, September 13, 2010 at 11:18pm.

A wood block, after being given a starting push, slides down a wood ramp at a constant speed. What is the angle of the ramp above horizontal?
The fact that there aren't any numbers involved here and a certain angle is required confuses me. I know it involves Newton's second law but don't we at least need to know weight of the block?
