1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If the kinetic coefficient of friction between ice skates and ice is 0.01, what is the average forward force necessary for a 500 Nt skater to maintain a constant forward velocity? 2. Relevant equations f = (Uk)(N) 3. The attempt at a solution f = (Uk) (N) f = (0.01) (500 Nt) f = 5 Nt Is this right? Just seems too simple. Can someone explain and walk me through this problem if I'm wrong. Also I realized from a diagram I did in my head Fapp - f = 0 Fapp = f Fapp = (Uk) (N).....right???
