(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

David pushes on a .50 kg bottle of water with a force of 3.5 N (R). The coefficient of friction between the bottle and the desk is .20. Using the dynamics worksheet format below, find the acceleration of the bottle and how far it travels in 3.0 s if it starts from rest.

2. Relevant equations

Not sure which ones to use:

-> Fnet=Fa-Ff

-> Fa = 3.5 N (E)

-> Ff= coefficient of friction*Fg

-> Fg= mg

Forces acting on bottle: Fg, Fn, Ff, Fa

3. The attempt at a solution

Fa=3.5N

coefficient of friction=.20

a=?

t=3.0s

V2=?

V1= 0m/s^2
