I have this one problem solving question that confuses me. Someone pushes a 50kg rock a distance of 10m in a recent competition of strength. The coefficient of friction between the rock and the ground is 0.8 and the person exerts a force of 400 N. I've got my free body digram with my applied force as the force going foward. I know i have to use Fnet to find the amount of newtons but what do i use to find fnet. 400N is suppose to minus with something. I'd appreciate it if someone can bring me a bit further into the question so i can get to the answer. I hope this is enough work, i'm trying to get some review before my exams.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
