what is the value for k if a spring stretches 0.4m when submitted to a 1800N force? How much force is needed to keep a 23 kg box moving at a constant velocity across a warehouse floor if the coefficient of friction between the box and the floor is 0.88?

A wheelchair ramp has an angle of 6 degrees,side length 29ft and height 3ft. For a safe ramp,the ratio of vertical distance: horizontal distance needs to be less than 1:12. Would the ramp be considered a safe ramp? Please show me how to do this! Thank you

**pig question (PHYSICS)**

Hello, a slide loving pig slides down a certain 35° slide in twice the time it would take to slide down a frictionless 35° slide. What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the pig and the slide? Is this the equation on how to solve it? It's ahard one to explain:g sin...
