What is the minimum amount of force required to move a 4000 pound truck that is resting on level ground? If 15000 N of force is applied can you move the truck? Ms=.56 Mk=.31

• physics -

force= mu*weight

This is a lot of converting. First convert "pound force" to newtons

Force= mu*weightinNewtons

1 pound of force is about 4.4 Newtons.
