1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Calculate the coefficient of friction between the wooden block and the table top, using a pendulum to hit the block. Mass of pendulum weight = 1 kg Mass of wooden block (with weight on top) = 2.073 kg Release height of pendulum = .06 m Pendulum's distance from starting point when released = .34 m Distance block moves = .036 m 2. Relevant equations Ff=μFN ΔPE=mgΔh ? 3. The attempt at a solution I have absolutely no idea where to start. My teacher said it involves a lot of energy transfers, so I calculated the change in potential energy to be 58.86 J, but I'm not even sure if that's right. If you could just explain it to me or point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
