A 4.00 kg block is pushed along the ceiling

  1. Oct 30, 2006 #1
    with a constant applied force of 85.0 N that acts at an angle of 55.0° with the horizontal. the block accelerates to the right at 6.00 m/s². determine the coefficient of kinetic frction between the block and the ceiling.

    Could you please show us your work, or at least thoughts on how to begin this problem? Try to draw yourself a picture and look at the forces involved. In what direction does the kinetic friction force act?etcetc

    i sorta drew a diagram of the forces, but still didn't really get it.

    Did you break down the force?
