Ok here is my situation. There is a problem that states:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the friction force if the acceleration of a 500 kg car being towed on a flat surface is 5 m/s2 and a tow truck is pulling with a force of 3550 N.

I do not where to go from here. Furthermore, the next question asks:

What would the coefficient of kinetic friction be?

If someone could help me out with this I would be extremely thankful!

This has got me going and
