1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A force of 52 N is applied to a 12 kg mass resting on a bench where the force of sliding friction is 15 N. The work done in overcoming friction while moving the object 24 m is 2. Relevant equations w=fd 3. The attempt at a solution could i just subtract 15N from 52N, then multiply that number by 24m to find the work??
