A trunk of mass 15 kg is on the floor. The
trunk has a very small initial speed.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
What constant horizontal force pushing the
trunk is required to give it a velocity of 10 m/s
in 20 s if the coefficient of sliding friction
between the trunk and the floor is 0.58?
Answer in units of N

1. 1. Wt = m*g = 15kg * 9.8N/kg = 147 N. =
Weight of trunk.

Fk = u*mg = 0.58 * 147 = 85.26 N.=Force
of kinetic friction.

2. Fap = 1300 N.?
Mass = 236 kg
u = 0.44

Wc = m*g = 236kg * 9.8N/kg = 2313 N. =
Weight of crate.

Fk = u*mg = 0.44 * 2313 = 1018 N.

a=(Fap-Fk)/m=(1300-1018)/236=1.19 m/s^2
