A 3.00kg block starts from rest at the top of a 27.5° incline and slides 2.00 m down the incline in 1.20 s.
(a) Find the acceleration of the block.
m/s2
(b) Find the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the incline.
(c) Find the frictional force acting on the block.
N
(d) Find the speed of the block after it has slid 2.00 m.
m/s

on the incline, the block has a normal to the incline component (mg*cosTheta), and a component of gravity force down the plane(mg*sinTheta)
a. Vf=at , but Vf^2=2ad, so
(at)^2=2ad
a=2d/t^2
b. Forcedown=mg*sinThetamu*mg(cosTheta)
but f=ma, so
ma= stuff to right, solve for mu.
c. Forcedown=mg*sinThetafrictionforce
d. friction force= mu*mg(cosTheta) 
silly
