In moving a 35.0 kg desk from one side of a classroom to the other, a professor finds that a horizontal force of 300 N is necessary to set the desk in motion, and a force of 185 N is necessary to keep it in motion at a constant speed. (a) What is the coefficient of static ...

1. A student is dragging a 5 kg box along the floor. He pulls on the rope with a 25 Newton force. The rope is 37 degrees above horizontal. As the box slides 10 meters, it goes from a speed of 3 m/s to a speed of 7 m/s. a.) calculate the normal force on the box b.) calculate ...

A 17 N horizontal force F pushes a block weighing 6.0 N against a vertical wall. The coefficient of static friction between the wall and the block is 0.68, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.48. Assume that the block is not moving initially. Will the block move? In ...

A 57.0 kg diver dives from a height of 15.0 m. She reaches a speed of 14.0 m/s just before entering the water. (a) What was the average force of air resistance (e.g., friction) acting on the diver. (b) What is the force of friction underwater if she reaches a depth of 2.5 m ...
