B Can velocity be considered a force?

  1. Nov 30, 2015 #1
    I have the velocity initial, time, and mass. I need to find a coefficient using these numbers. I was going to use the equation Ffric=MN=Mmg but I don't know what to plug in for the force of friction. So could I use the velocity it gives?

    No. Velocity is not a force.

    What coefficient? We need more context to understand what you are trying to do.
