A coin of mass 3 g slides horizontally on the surface of a table. The frictional force exerted on the penny is 0.0147 N. What is the coefficient of friction between the table and the penny?

  • physics -

    0.0147=Fn(µk)= (3kg)(9.8m/s^2)µk,

    Solve for µk

  • physics -

    0.0147 = 0.003*g*(µk)

    µk = 0.50

    Devron forgot to convert mass to kg.

  • physics -

    Read it wrong. Thought mass was already given in Kg
