A block of mass 3 kg slides along a horizontal surface while a 20-N force is applied to it at an angle of 25°. If needed, use g = 10 m/s2. For a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.3 between the block and the surface, the frictional force acting on the block is most nearly

  2. Is the 25 degree angle of the applied force above or below horizontal? It makes a big difference in the answer.

  3. If the angle is 25 degree below the horizontal, then the upward component makes the friction lighter (less normal force).

    friction=mu(normal force)
    = .3(mg-20sin25)
    =.3(30-8.45)
    = no answer.

    so assuming the 25 is above the horizontal, friction will be greater..
    friction= = .3(mg+20sin25)
    =.3(38.45)= almost 12 N

  4. F(y) = F•sinα =20•sin25º =8.45 N.
    The force may be applied
    \ from top downward
    or / from the bottom upward ,
    then
    F(fr) =μ•N = μ•[mg ± F(y)] =
    = 0.3•{3•10 ± 8.45) =
    = 11.54 N or 6.5 N,
