Physics problem - coefficient of friction? Bonnie and Clyde are sliding a 300 kg bank safe across the floor to their getaway car. The safe slides with a constant speed if Clyde pushes from behind with 385 N of force while Bonnie pulls foward on a rope with 350N of force. What is the safe's coefficient of kinetic friction of the bank floor?

2. Relevant equations

I'm guessing f=ma?

3. The attempt at a solution

2.0x10? What I did was use the formula and drew out the picture and tried to solve the problem. I ended up getting confused on which formula to use and how to go about solving it.
