A box of books weighing 229 N is shoved across the floor by a force of 420 N exerted downward at an angle of 35° below the horizontal.If µk between the box and the floor is 0.75, how long does it take to move the box 7 m, starting from rest? (If the box will not move, enter 0.)

Please type your __subject__ in the **School Subject** box. Any other words, __including obscure abbreviations__, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.

TAke the downward component of the force, add that to weight, to find the normal force. Then you can calculate friction force.

Compute the horizontal component of the pushing force.

horizontal force-friction=mass*acceleration

find acceleration.

distance=1/2 a t^2 solve for time.
