The force needed to overcome friction and drag a person across the floor depends on the person's weight. Manuel Dexterity can drag Gil O' Teen across the floor by pulling with a force of 51 pounds. Gil's brother, Nick who weighs twice as much can be dragged across the floor by pulling with a force of 102 pounds.
A.) How does force cary with the person's weight?
How do I come up with the equation? I don't know how to do this... it's something link
Y=kX or something of the sort...
This stupid math class expects us to use pounds for force instead of newtons
