Question

Mild-mannered Clark Kent pushes a box with a force F at an angle of 21° below the horizontal. Find the force Clark Kent is required to push with to start the crate moving. The mass of the crate is m = 34 kg and the coefficient of static friction between the crate and the floor is 0.67.

N

Answer #1

Given that

The mass of the crate is m = 34 kg

The coefficient of static friction between the crate and the floor is (us) =0.67

Mild-mannered Clark Kent pushes a box with a force F at an angle of 21° below the horizontal.

Find the force Clark Kent is required to push with to start the crate moving.

Now the Fs =usFN

Fs =Fax =Facostheta =Facos(21) =0.933Fa

FN =Fay+mg =Fay+(34)(9.81) =Fasin(20) +333.54 =0.3420Fa+333.54

Now

0.933Fa= us (0.3420Fa+333.54)

0.933Fa = (0.67) (0.3420Fa+333.54)

0.933Fa = 0.2291Fa+223.47

Fa =233.47/0.704 =331.63N

1. A janitor pushes on a trashcan with a force of 47 N and 15°
below horizontal axis. The trashcan is 15-kg. The static and
kinetic friction coefficient between the trashcan and the ground
are μs = 0.28 and μk = 0.13, respectively. N: normal force; W:
weight force; f: friction force; j: janitor; t: trashcan;
g: ground; E: earth. Select the correct value of normal force from
the ground to the trashcan (Ngt).

A large crate with mass m rests on a horizontal floor.
The static and kinetic coefficients of friction between the crate
and the floor are μs and μk, respectively. A
woman pushes downward on the crate at an angle θ below the
horizontal with a force F⃗ .
What is the magnitude of the force vector
F⃗ required to keep the crate moving at
constant velocity?
If μs is greater than some critical value, the woman
cannot start the crate moving...

a large box whose mass is 20.0 kg rests on the frictionless
floor. A mover pushes on the box with a force of 250 N at an angle
35.0 below the horizontal. Draw the box's free body diagram and

b) if the kinetic friction coefficient is 0.1 between the box
and floor. Draw the box's free body diagram and re-calculate the
acceleration of the box

the mass of the box? kg (b) What is the coefficient of kinetic
friction between the floor and the box?
(a) What is the mass of the box?
_________kg
(b) What...

A box of mass 12 kg is placed on the horizontal floor. The floor
is not frictionless. If someone pushes on to the box with a force F
= 40 N which is directed at an angle of 37.0 o below the
horizontal and the box slides along the floor. What is the normal
force that the floor exerts on the box?

A crate of 31.6-kg tools rests on a horizontal floor. You exert
a gradually increasing horizontal push on it and observe that the
crate just begins to move when your force exceeds 309 N . After
that you must reduce your push to 248 N to keep it moving at a
steady 22.0 cm/s
What is the coefficient of static friction between the crate and
the floor?
What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the crate
and the floor?...

A factory worker pushes a 29.8 kg crate a distance of 5.0 m
along a level floor at constant velocity by pushing downward at an
angle of 30 ∘ below the horizontal. The coefficient of kinetic
friction between the crate and floor is 0.26.
1.What magnitude of force must the worker apply to move the
crate at constant velocity?
2.How much work is done on the crate by this force when the
crate is pushed a distance of 5.0 m...
