Finding the Friction Force to Overcome

  1. Oct 2, 2011 #1
    I just had a general question regarding Friction.

    With the following information, how could i calculate Friction Force to overcome(assuming it is on a horizontal plane and not moving):
    Mass,
    Weight,
    Normal Force,
    μ( Coef of Friction)

    say the mass was 100, weight was 980, Normal Force was 980 and μ was .1

    Homework questions should go in the homework forum. There are plenty there like yours right now.

    Oh ok... I did not think this was a homework question. Sorry.
