Conveyor Belt

A box of mass m = 1.5 kg is dropped vertically onto a conveyor belt which is moving with a constant speed v = 6.2 m/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the box and the conveyor belt is: k = 0.12. How much time does it take before the box attains the same speed as the conveyor belt?

t = s
