A 5-kg box is pushed across a horizontal floor by a 20-N force that is angled 30 degrees
below the horizontal. What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the box and the floor if
the box is pushed at a constant speed?

    ma=Fcosα-F(fr)
    ma=0
    F(fr) = μmg
    Fcosα= μmg
    μ=Fcosα/mg =
    =20•cos30/5•9.8=0.35
