As we learnt in

Kinetic or Dynamic Friction -

f_{K}\;\alpha\ R

f_{K}=\mu_{K} R

f_{K}= kinetic friction 

\mu_{K}= coefficient of kinetic friction

R = reaction

- wherein

f_{K}<F_{l}

\therefore\ \mu_{K}<\mu_{s}

\mu_{K}=depends on the nature of surface in contact.

 

 

 

For upper half smooth incline, component of g down the incline = gsin\phi    

\therefore \; \; v^{2}=2(gsin\phi )\frac{l}{2}

       

For lower half rough incline, frictional retardation = \mu _{k}gcos\phi       

\therefore      Resultant acceleration = gsin\phi -\mu _{k}gcos\phi

\therefore \; \; \; \; \; 0=v^{2}+2(gsin\phi -\mu _{k}gcos\phi )\frac{l}{2}

or      0=2(gsin\phi )\frac{l}{2}+2g(sin\phi -\mu _{k}cos\phi )\frac{l}{2}

or\; \; \; 0=sin\phi +sin\phi-\mu _{k}cos\phi

or\; \; \; \mu _{k}cos\phi =2sin\phi

or\; \; \; \mu _{k}=2tan\phi

Correct option is 1.
