A force of 10 newtons toward the right is exerted on a wooden crate initially moving to the right on a horizontal wooden floor. the crate weights 25 newtons.

A) calculate the magnitude of the force of friction between the crate and the floor

B) name the vertical forces acting on the crate

C) name the horizontal forces acting on the crate

D) what is the magnitude of the net force acting on the crate

E) is the crate accelerating?

2. Relevant equations

A) u*Fn = ff (how can i find out u?)

b) weight is 25 newtons so fg and fnormal is 25 newtons

c) applied force is 10 newtons

d) m*a = f net or applied force - ff = fn (mass and acceleration isnt given so i cant use it)

3. The attempt at a solution

im stuck with the equations can someone help =)
