i'm not very good at physics and i have an exam tomorrow!!

for the first one do i use the formula F=-Kx to make the answer -4500 ?

and for the second i really have no idea what formula to use



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?

  • physics -

    k=force/distance

    moving at a constant veloicty? Well you have to supply force equal to friction: mg*mu

  • physics -

    k=F/x
    =1800/0.4
    =4500 N/m
