A 280 N force is pulling an 80.0 kg refrigerator across a horizontal surface. The force acts at an angle of 18.0° above the surface. The coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.200, and the refrigerator moves a distance of 6.00 m.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) Find the work done by the pulling force.

1.60*10^3 J

(b) Find the work done by the kinetic frictional force.

J

I have the answer for part a, but i keep getting the wrong answer for part b. Can someone please help me solve this problem?
