Rocket Racer on Track#

A rocket racer toy of mass \(m = {{ params.m }} kg\) is sent down a track from \(A\) to \(B\) from a height \(h = {{ params.h }} m\) and a horizontal distance \(d = {{ params.d }} m\) away from point B as shown in the diagram below. If the toy has a velocity of \({{ params.va }} m/s\) down the incline at point \(A\), and a velocity of \({{ params.vb }} m/s\) at point \(B\), what is the work done by friction as the toy moves from point A to point B?
