Homework Help: Friction and cart of mass Question

  1. Dec 2, 2004 #1
    I'm having trouble with this if anyone can help thanks.

    A cart with a mass of 2kg is pulled across a level desk by a horizontal force of 4N. If the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.12, what is the acceleration of the cart?

    What have you done to try and solve the problem? Start off by drawing a free body diagram.
