A 468 kg bear grasping a vertical tree is sliding down at constant velocity. The acceleration of gravity is 10m/s^2. What is the friction force that acts on the bear.

asked by jay
  1. The acceleration of gravity is on Earth nowhere 10m/s^2. I am against teachers teaching nonsense.

    frictionforce=weight at constant velocity
    =mg
