A force of 48.0 N is required to start a 5.0 kg box moving across a horizontal concrete floor. (a) what is the coefficient of static friction between the box and the floor?

(b) if the 48.0N force continues the box accelerates at 0.70m/sec2. what is the coefficient of kinetic friction

I have no idea how to set up up problem (a), all i know is the Ffr=us(mg)
