  1. Wb = m*g = 4kg * 9.8N/kg = 39.2 N. = Wt.
    0f block.

    Fb = 39.2N. @ 30o = Force of block.
    Fp=39.2*sin30 = 19.6 N.=Force parallel to plane.
    Fv = 39.2*cos30 = 33.9 N. = Force perpendicular to plane.

    Fk = u*Fv = u*33.9.

    Fn = Fp-Fk = m*a.
    19.6 - 33.9u = 4*1.2 = 4.8
    -33.9u = 4.8 - 19.6 = -14.8
    u = 0.437 = Coefficient of kinetic friction.
