A window washer pushes his scrub brush →−
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.

    I don't understand your symbology →−

  • physics - ,

    where'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

  • physics - ,

    v=const => a=0

    N =F(x)•cosα
    F(y)•sinα=mg+F(fr)
    F(y)=(mg+μN)/sinα
    F=sqrt(F(x)²+F(y)²)

  • physics - ,

    F is 208.42N normal is 125.14 N

  • physics - ,

    F*sin(theta) = F*cos(theta) * (mew) + weight
    F*sin(theta) = F*cos(theta) * (0.150) + 15
