    I am just about to find the co-efficient of friction from my experimental results, and from the equation I cant get past this bit. how do I calculate the co-efficient of friction from or which way do I re-arrange the equation so I can find n, the co-efficient of friction?

    11000=12184/9n

    Silly question innit! :biggrin:

    [tex] 11000=\frac{12184}{9n} [/tex]

    Multiply both sides by n

    [tex] 11000n=\frac{12184}{9} [/tex]

    Divide both sides by 11000

    [tex] n=\frac{12184}{(9)(11000)} [/tex]
