You push a box along the floor against a constant force of friction. When you push with a horizontal force of 75 N the acceleration of the box is 0.55 m/s2; when you increase the force to 85 N the acceleration is 0.78 m/s2.

(a) Find the mass of the box. kg

(b) Find the coefficient of kinetic friction between the box and the floor.

    Net force= m*a
    75-friction=m*.55
    85-friction=m*.78
    subtract the first equation from the second

    10=m(.23)
    m= 10/.23
    then solve for friction in either equation, finally, mu=frictionforce/mg
