Nonequilibrium Applicastions of Newtons Laws of Motion

A crate is resting on a ramp that is inclined at an angle 0(thada) the horizontal.As 0(thada) is increased, the crate remains in place until 0(thada)reaches a value of 38.0 degrees. Then the crate begins to slide down the slope. (a) Determine the coefficient of static friction between the crate and the ramp surface. (b) The coefficient of kinetic friction between the crate and the ramp surface is 0.600. Find the acceleration of the moving crate.
