Static and dynamic friction

  1. Oct 6, 2007 #1
    If the force I need to apply to a block before it starts moving is 10N, and the same force of 10N is continually applied thereafter, will the block accelerate or travel at constant speed (taking into consideration the presence of static and dynamic forces of friction) and why?
