A box is pulled across a horizontal surface at a constant speed by a horizontal rope with tension T=30N. The coefficient of friction between the box and surface is uk = 0.05.

1. Calculate the work done by friction as the box moves 4 meters to the right.

i thought it would be .05 x 30 x 4 since work is F x D but it isn't

2. What is the mass of the box.

  • physics -

    Multiply pulling force by distance for the work done.

    Use the uk value to get the mass of the boss.

    Friction force = M*g*uk
