A force of 20N applied parallel to the surface of a horizontal table,is just sufficient to make a block of mass 4kg move on the table.calculate the coefficient of friction between the block and the table.

The definition of the static coefficient of friction (ìs) tells you that
Force required to move = 20 N = M*g*ìs
Solve for ìs
