A BOX IS SLIDING UP AN INCLINE THAT MAKES AN ANGLE OF 16 DEGREES W/ RESPECT TO THE HORIZONTAL. THE COEFFECEINT OF KINETIC FRICTION BETWEEN THE BOX AND THE INCLINE IS 0.18. THE INITIAL SPEED OF THE BOX AT THE BOTTOM OF THE INCLINE IS 3.0 M/S.
HOW FAR DOES THE BOX TRAVEL UP THE INCLINE BEFORE COMING TO REST?

If an object slides directly down an inclined place, at a constant velocity of 6 m/s, how large is the coefficient of kineticfriction if the plane make an angle of 25 degrees with the horizontal?

Does kineticfriction depend on area? What about Normal force? or speed? And what is the difference between static and kineticfriction.
Please help me understand kineticfriction.

As Fig. 8-44 shows, a 4.5 kg block is accelerated by a compressed spring whose spring constant is 640 N/m. After leaving the spring at the spring's relaxed length, the block travels over a horizontal surface, with a coefficient of kineticfriction of 0.25, for a distance of 5.9 m before stopping.

A track consists of a frictionless arc XY, which is a quarter-circle of radius R, and a rough horizontal section YZ. Block A of mass M is released from rest at point X, slides down the curved section of the track, and collides instantaneously and inelastically with identical block B at point Y. The two blocks move together to t

A bullet with a mass of 3.00 g, traveling horizontally with a speed of 420 m/s, is fired into a wooden block with mass of 0.840 kg , initially at rest on a level surface. The bullet passes through the block and emerges with its speed reduced to 180m/s . The block slides a distance of 48.0 cm along the surface from its initial po

One block rests upon a horizontal surface. A second identical block rests upon the first one. The coefficient of static friction between the blocks is the same as the coefficient of static friction between the lower block and the horizontal surface. A horizontal force is applied to the upper block, and its magnitude is slowly in

Two blocks, of weights 3.6 N and 7.2 N, are connected by a mass-less string and slide down a 30 degree inclined plane. The coefficient of kineticfriction between the lighter block and the plane is 0.10; that between the heavier block and the plane is 0.20. Assuming that the lighter block leads, find a) the magnitude of the acce

A block of mass M slides along a horizontal table with speed Vo. At x=0 it hits a spring constant k and begins to experience a frictional force. The coefficient of friction is a variable and is given by u=bx, where b is a constant. Find the loss in mechanical energy when the block has come momentarily to rest.

The problem is: The light horizontal spring has a force constant of k=100 N/m. A 2.00 kg block is pressed against one end of the spring (compressing it 0.100 m). The block is released and moves from rest 0.250 m to the right of the release position. Show that the coefficient of kineticfriction between the block and the horizont
