An object of mass m is at rest at the top of a smooth slope of height h and length L. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the object and the surface, μk, is small enough that the object will slide down the slope if given a very small push to get it started. Find an expression for the object's speed at the bottom of the slope in terms of the variables m, μk, L, h.
