 P: 347 The Coin(Green) in lying on a paper which is lying on a box.When I pull the paper with a higher force so that I could remove it easily,the coins stays about the same place. When I remove the paper slowly,the coin comes with the paper. Why? I think that objects can react(Move) to smaller forces easily but for larger forces,it doesn't. What do you think?

Because the coefficient of static friction is higher than the coefficient of kinetic friction.

No, that is wrong.

 Mentor P: 15,560 Static friction force is given by $f_s\le\mu_s N$ and kinetic friction force is given by $f_k=\mu_k N$. In both cases N (the normal force) is the same, so ##f_s## (the friction force without slipping) can be larger than ##f_k## (the friction force with slipping).
