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

A 219-kg crate is pushed horizontally with a force of 710 N. If the coefficient of friction is 0.20, calculate the acceleration of the crate.

m=219kg

force of friction= 219kg *.2 =43.8N?

2. Relevant equations

f=ma?

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not sure at all how to calculate the acceleration and what to use as the "F" to calcuate it
