**bobpursley**, Sunday, October 21, 2012 at 5:35pma. you know the final speed (twice average). Vf=2*2.41m/2.14s

Vf^2=Vi^2+2ad solve for acceleration a.

b. do energy concepts

KEfinal=KE initial + PEinitial-PEfinal-Frictionenergy

or

1/2 m vf^2=0 + mg 2.41/sinTheta -0-friction energy

solve for friction energy

then, Frictionenergy=mu(mg*cosTheta)

solve for mu.

c. friction energy=force*distance solve for force.

d. See a.

**Alex**, Sunday, October 21, 2012 at 5:56pmCan you tell me the answer for c and d. I got the one for a and b correct but c says it's not correct. I put 21.96N.
