Calculate the formula for coefficient of kinetic friction in an inclined plane with a pulley and two masses coonected by a rope. You can only use the weight of the two masses, the height where the second object is and the distance that the first object does and the angle of the inclined plane. You can use time

  1. m1g – m2g sinθ - µ m2g cosθ = (m1 + m2) ½ Δh t^2

    Solve for mu

    This assumes one weight is hanging (pulling)and the other is on the ramp.
