the coefficients of static and kinetic friction for stone on wood are, respectively, 0.5 and 0.4. if a 150 kg stone statue is pushed with just enough force to start moving across a wooden floor and the same force continues to act afterward. find the statue’s acceleration.

force=ma where
force=mg*(.5.4)
a= .1g
check that
