A box is sliding up an incline of 15 degrees to the horizontal. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the box and the surface of the incline is 0.18 The initial velocity of the box is 1.5 m/s. How far does the box travel up the incline before coming to a stop?

SOLUTION: Initial kinetic energy of box = mv^2Work done by gravity = mgdSin= mgdCos=Work done to stop the boxd = = 0.44m
