Good evening.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would appreciate if someone could verify the following please.

The question:

A 100kg crate is pulled across a horizontal floor by a force P that makes an angle of 30 degrees above the horizontal. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the crate and floor is 0.200. What is P if the net work done is zero.

My solution:

First determine Ff = umg. This would give me 196N. My next step is to determine P. I use 196N and put that over cos30. My answer is 226.3N. Does this seem reasonable.

thanks for your time
