A dog sled weighing 750 lb is pulled over level snow at a uniform speed by a dog team exerting a force of 60 lb. Find the coefficient of friction.

  • physic - ,

    The friction force Ff = 60 lb equals the pulling force, since it is not accelerating.

    The coefficient of kinetic friction is
    (pulling force)/(weight) = 60lb/750lb
    = 0.080 (a dimensionless number)
