(a) A 10 kg box of candy rests on a floor with a coefficient of static friction of 0.30. What force is needed to move the box?

b) What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between a rubber tire and the road if a 2000 kg car needs 1.57 × 104 N to keep the car moving at a constant speed?

  • Physics -

    normal force = m g = 10*9.81
    so
    friction force max = .3 * 10 * 9.81
    which is min horizontal force required to start acceleration

    F = m a
    a = 0
    so
    friction Force - pulling force = 0

    mu * 2000 * 9.81 = 1.57 * 10^4
