A 0.32 kg box of macaroni is held in place at the front of a 3.31 kg shopping cart only by the force of static friction as the shopping cart accelerates. Determine the minimum acceleration, in m/s 2, that the shopping cart must have if the box is to be kept from falling if the coefficient of static friction between the box and cart is 0.35.
