When you push a 1.80-kg book resting on a tabletop, it takes 2.05 N to start the book sliding. What is the frictional force exerted on the book when you push on it with a force of 0.80 N?

    The book will not slide if a force that low is applied, so the friction force equals the applied force in that case.
