A 13.9 kg block is dragged over a rough, horizontal surface by a 70.7 N force acting at 19.8 degrees above the horizontal. The block is displaced 4.55 m, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.298.

How much energy is lost due to friction?

• physics -

break the 70.7N force into vertical and horizontal components.
The vertical component reduces weight, so figure the normal force (and friction) from that.

frictionforce=(13.9g-70.7Sin19.8)mu
work=frictionforce*distance

Now notice that this does not equal the horizontal component of force*distance. So, the block has to accelerate.
