Once a 15 kg crate is in motion on a horizontal
floor, a horizontal force of 56 N keeps the crate
moving with a constant velocity.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s
2.
What is µk, the coefficient of kinetic friction, between the crate and the floor?

  • physics -

    Wc = mg = 15kg * 9.81N/kg = 147.2N. =
    Weight of crate.

    Fc = 147.2N @ 0deg.
    Fp = 147.4sin(0) = 0 = Force parallel to floor.
    Fv = 147.4cos(0) = 147.4N. = Force
    perpendicular to floor.

    Fn = Fap - Fp - Ff = 0,
    Fn = 56 - 0 - 147.4u = 0,
    147.4u = 56,
    u = 0.380.
