Enigmatic physics problems

  1. Oct 25, 2007 #1
    What is the acceleration of a 20Kg pail of cement that is pulled upward by a rope that applies a force of 208 n to the pail?

    A 10kg box is shoved across a floor at an initial speed of 9m/s. It comes to a rest in 3 seconds after it is shoved. Find the frictional force. Problem begins after the shove is released.

    Answer in reply section making sure that answer are identifiable as different..
