1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. A block of mass 35 kg is on a flat floor with a static friction coefficient of 0.36 and a kinetic friction coefficient of 0.29. A person attempts to slide the box from rest in a forward direction. Find the maximum frictional force experienced and the acceleration of the box once it is moving if: a) the person pushes horizontally with 120 N. m=35kg μs=0.36 μk=0.29 2. Relevant equations Fnet=m*a Fnorm=g*m μk=Fnet/Fnorm 3. The attempt at a solution *Disclaimer: I'm taking an online class with very few sample questions so I will not be held liable for any injuries that occur due to facepalming at my attempts to solve these* Fn=m*g Fn=35kg*9.8kg/N Fn= 343N F=Fn*μs F=343N*0.36 F=123.48N So 123.48N is the maximum friction force experienced? And the acceleration can be found from: We know uK=0.29 And uK=Fnet/Fnorm So 0.29=Fnet/343N 0.29*343N=Fnet 99.47N=Fnet We know Fnet=m*a, so: 99.47N=35kg*a a=2.842m/s^2 So acceleration is 2.842m/s^2? I am 20000% percent sure that I have these wrong because I didn't include the applied force given in the question at all (among other reasons). I have a few other questions similar to this but involving angles and different applied forces, I'm sure once I understand how to do this one I can do the others, but I thought the most basic one would be a good starting place for someone here to point out my errors. Thank you!
