A crate of mass 50.0 kg rests on a flat surface, and there is a coefficient of static friction of 0.200 between the crate and the surface. A person pushed on the crate with a force of 5.00 N at an angle of 25.0 degrees below the horizontal. Will the crate move? If it does move what acceleration will the crate have?
