# Problem: A small rock block with mass 0.400 kg is placed against a compressed spring at the bottom of a 37.0° incline. The compressed spring has 50.0 J of elastic potential energy stored in it. The spring is released and the block moves a distance of 12.0 m along the incline before momentarily coming to rest. How much work does the friction force do on the block during the motion? What is the coefficient of kinetic frinction μk between the block and the incline?

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Farrokhi's class at FIU.
