A 220 N crate is pushed along the ground with a horizontal force. The coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.21 and the coefficient of static friction is 0.31. The crate moves at a constant speed of 4.1 m/s.

a) Draw a free-body diagram for the crate.

b) What is the size of the pushing force? 46.2 N

c) How long will it take the box to stop if the pushing force is removed?

  • physics - ,

    Fc = 220N @ 0deg. = Force of crate.
    Fp = 220sin(0) = 0 = Force parallel to
    ground.
    Fv = 220cos(0) = 220N. = Force perpendicular to ground.

    Fs = u*Fv = 0.31 * 220 = 68.2N. = Force
    of static friction.
    Fk = 0.21 * 220 = 46.2N. = Force of kinetic friction.

    b. Fn = Fap - Fp - Fk = ma = 0, a = 0.
    Fap - 0 - 46.2 = 0,
    Fap=46.2N.=Force applied(pushing force)
