Homework Help: Applying Newton's Laws; coefficient of kinetic force

  1. Feb 18, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    To move a large crate across a rough floor, you push on it with a force F at an angle of 21°, below the horizontal. Find the acceleration of the crate, given that the mass of the crate is m = 28 kg, the applied force is 322 N and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the crate and the floor is 0.50.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
