1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data As shown in the figure, a block is pushed up against the wall. Let the mass of the block be m=2.3 kg, the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the wall be µ= 0.53, and θ= 62. Suppose F = 68 N. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. Find the force of friction. Answer in units of N. http://img359.imageshack.us/my.php?image=71957582pz7.jpg http://img359.imageshack.us/my.php?image=71957582pz7.jpg 2. Relevant equations Fk= µ ( F sin θ - mg) F=ma 3. The attempt at a solution Well first I used F= µ(F sin θ), but I figured it was too simple, so I drew a free body diagram and saw mg going down on the block. I'm not sure how to go from there. Does the vertical component of force equal mg?
