I have no clue how to start solving the question as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A box is dropped onto a conveyor belt moving at 1.7 m/s. If the coefficient of friction between the box adn the belt is 0.7, what distance doest the box move before it moves without slipping? (g = 9.8 m/s)

What is the horizontal force to move the box on the belt?

Thanks alot.
