up a vertical window at constant speed by applying a force F as

shown in Fig. P5.74. The brush weighs 15.0 N and the coefficient

of kinetic friction is μk = 0.150. Calculate (a) the magnitude of →−

the force F and (b) the normal force exerted by the window on the brush.

**yan**, Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 1:51pmwhere's the picture?

any how, F=uN

brush weighs 15N , 15N=the normal force if the washer doesn't push down. If he/she did push down on the brush with a force F, it would be the cosine of the angle that is pushing down . so yeah draw a free body, and you'll see which forces are required

N =F(x)•cosα

F(y)•sinα=mg+F(fr)

F(y)=(mg+μN)/sinα

F=sqrt(F(x)²+F(y)²)
