A force of 1.2N is applied to an object of mass 1.5Kg. It accelerates at 0.50 m/s^2. Determine the Force of friction and the Coefficient of Friction This is what I did. However, it seems that the Force of Friction is really low so I'm not sure if I did this question right. F=M * A ..which is can also be used as Fnet .:. Fnet= 1.5kg(0.50 m/s^2) = 0.75 N Fapp= 1.2 N Fnet=Fapplied + Ffriction Ffriction = Fnet-Fapplied = 0.75n -1.2 n = - 0.45 N If I continue to Figure out the coefficient of Friction it seems very unreasonable. Ffriction/ Fnormal = kinetic Coefficient -.45n/ -9.8m/s^2 * 1.5kg = .0382 This may be right but I'm not quite sure. Any input would be great.
