A 55.0kg box rests on a horizontal surface. The coefficient of static friction between the box and the surface is .300. What horizontal force must be applied to the box for it to start sliding along the surface? Please write out the solution. I am getting an answer of 165N but I don't think I wrote out the solution correctly.
