J
(b) the increase in internal energy in the box-floor system due to friction
J
(c) the work done by the normal force
J
(d) the work done by the gravitational force
J
(e) the change in kinetic energy of the box
J
(f) the final speed of the box
m/s

    m=39.0 kg s=4.5 m,
    F=135 N, μ=0.3

    (a) W(F) = Fs
    (b) ΔU= W(fr) = μmgs
    (c) W(N) = 0
    (d) W(mg) = 0
    (e) KE=W(F) –W(fr) =Fs - μmgs
    (f) KE=mv²/2
    v= sqrt(2•KE/m)
