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