A box of books weighing 229 N is shoved across the floor by a force of 455 N exerted downward at an angle of 35° below the horizontal.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) If µk between the box and the floor is 0.57, how long does it take to move the box 5 m, starting from rest?

(b) If µk between the box and the floor is 0.75, how long does it take to move the box 5 m, starting from rest?

I started by finding the x and y vectors x=272.71 y=260.98 Then i tried to th Neutral force and used it in the equation Fk=µk*N But i am lost and dont know hwat to do please help me

Thanks
