1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Let's say I had this object that someone was dragging at an angle across a horizontal plane. I am only given the angle to the horizontal, the mass of the object, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the object and the surface. How do I find the applied force needed to drag the block at a constant speed? 3. The attempt at a solution I'm not quite sure how to approach this. I feel I have too many unknowns, since the normal force also includes the y component of the applied force... Help? Ideas?
