A man pulls a crate of mass 63.0 kg across a level floor. He pulls with a force of 174.0 N at an angle of 22.0° above the horizontal. When the crate is moving, the frictional force between the floor and the crate has a magnitude of 124.0 N.
If the crate starts from rest, how fast will it be moving after the man has pulled it a distance of 2.90 m?

  1. Find the component of the man's force parallel to the floor. Subtact the force due to kinetic friction to get the net force. Use acceleration=force/mass to find the acceleration. For an initial velocity of 0, use v=sqrt(2*acceleration*distance) to calculate the speed at 2.90m
