what will be the rate of acceleration be when a 10N force is applied to a 7.0kg block of wood resting on a table with a coefficient of friction equalling 0.45?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ok so i am totally confused, im thinking i have to use 2 formulas but im not exactly sure

i tried the formula:

Fn = Fg = mg

and did:

Fn = 10(7.0) = 70N

then i thought:

Fκ = μ Fn

so i did:

Fκ = (0.45)(70) = 31.5m/s(squared)

im not sure if thats right it doesnt seem to be please help!!!
