A block whose weight is 30.0 N rests on a horizontal table. A horizontal force of 48 N is applied to the block. The coefficients of static and kinetic friction are 0.650 and 0.420 N, respectively. Will the block move under the influence of the force, and, if so, what will be the block's acceleration?

2. Relevant equations

force of static friction = mu x normal force = ma

force of kinetic friction = mu of k x normal force

3. The attempt at a solution

i understand how to use both the static and kinetic frictions...but how do i connect the two to answer this question?
