(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 20 kg block is on a surface where the coefficient of friction is 0.30. Find the minimal force needed to have the block more slowly at a constant speed.

3. The attempt at a solution

So I did coefficient of friction(mass)(gravity)=frictional force

20(0.3)(9.8)=58.86 N is the frictional force

Now is the minimal force needed to move the block like 58.87?
