Depends on the rubber and the wood. (Yeah, I know that's a cop out.) Check your text or for a table of coefficients, if this is for an exercise.

Didn't find it in my texts either :( You can check the CRC handbook of chemistry and physics at the library for a more precise value, but I think it's around 0.7.

In Physics I textbooks usually don't have them.

Check out Physics II Giancoli.

It says it's 1 - 4., so I'd say around 2.42
