A block weighing 300 N slides downwards on the angled surface shown at an initial velocity of
2.5 m/s. At t = 0, a force P with the given orientation is applied until the block stops. Knowing
that it took 5 seconds for the block to stop and that the coefficient of kinetic friction μk = 0.1,
determine the magnitude of P (picture included in the post)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First i broke the forces into components. Added the Fn and Friction force on the diagram and labelled 300N force acting downwards. Once i broke the forces into components i got two equations, one for forces acting on the yaxis and the second for forces acting on the xaxis. 0.4226P + Fn  281.90 = 0  Equation (1) 0.9063P  F(f) +102.606 = 0  Equation (2) Note that F(f) is force of friction. Then i knew that F(f) = Fn x 0.1 from the question so i replaced it F(f) with it. 0.4226P + Fn  281.90 = 0 0.9063P  0.1Fn +102.606 = 0 After this i solved these two equations simultaneously and found the value of P. My question/confusion is regarding all the other information given in the question, such as the initial velocity, time etc. I feel like i have done something wrong here. Any guidance would be highly appreciated.
