a block moves up 45degree incline w/ constant speed under the action of a force of 15n applied parallel to the incline.If the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.3, determine the weight of the block and minimum force required to allow the block to move down the incline at constant speed

1. normal force = m g cos 45
so friction down slope = .3 m g cos 45
at 45 sin 45 = cos 45 = sqrt 2/2
weight down slope = m g sin 45

15 N = m g sin 45 + .3 m g cos 45

15 N = (m g sqrt 2/2)( 1 + .3)
30/1.3 sqrt 2 = m g = weight

if friction he other way then
F up = (m g sqrt 2/2)( 1 - .3)
= (m g sqrt 2/2)( .7)
