Did my teacher incorrectly write this problem? I looked at it for a good 20 minutes straight before posting this on here.. It's so easy but I think there is something wrong. 1.) The Wheels of a 1.450 x 10^3 Kg car car are locked so that it can only slide on wet concrete at a constant speed of 3.00 m/s when pulled by a horizontal force of 3.45 x 10^3 N. (a) Find the coefficient of sliding friction for rubber on when concrete. (b) what is the acceleration of the car after 3.50s? Coefficient of kinetic friction of rubber on wet concrete - 0.5 (given in book) Coefficient of Static friction of rubber on wet concrete - 0.7 (given in book) ]Normal Force = mg Friction Force = Friction Coefficient x Normal Force What's strange about this is that it seems that 3.45 x 10^3 N is not enough either to get the locked wheels to slide when from rest or already in motion. So i don't see how it can be sliding at 3.00 m/s in the first place.
