a 40-N forcee pulls a 4-kg a horizontal distance of 8 meterr. the rope makes an angle of 35 degree with the floor and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.2. what is the work done by each acting on block?

  • physics -

    Ffloor = force on floor = ( m g - 40 sin 35)

    Friction force = Ff = Ffloor*.2
    work done against friction = Ff * 8

    Horizontal force = 40 cos 35
    Work done by Horizontal force = 40 cos 35 * 8
