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 do i have to do something special with the force of friction? or do i just plug the variables for force and distance in the equation and that is the answer..
