You are lowering two boxes, one on top of the other, down the ramp shown in the figure (Figure 1) by pulling on a rope parallel to the surface of the ramp. Both boxes move together at a constant speed of 12.0cm/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the ramp and the lower box is 0.476 , and the coefficient of static friction between the two boxes is 0.823 .
