# Calculating The Acceleration And Velocity Of A Block

A block lies on a plane tilted at an angle theta = 22.0* to the horizontal, with the coefficient of kinetic friction mu_k = 0.17.

a) Determine the acceleration of the block as it slides down the plane.

b) If the block starts from rest 9.3 m up the plane from its base, what will be the block's speed when it reaches the bottom of the incline?
