Question

16. A 15.0 kg box rests on a flat table. The coefficient of
kinetic friction between the table and the box is 0.20, and the
coefficient of static friction is 0.25. A string pulls on the box
with a force of 78 N at 0.0o. Using appropriate quantitative
problem-solving steps, determine whether the box remains at rest or
accelerates. If the box accelerates, determine the
acceleration.

A) Calculate the maximum static friction. Keep four sf.

B) Calculate the kinetic friction. Keep three sf.

C) As the box slides, what is the net force acting on the box? Keep
three sf.

D) What is the acceleration of the box? Keep two sf.

(SF means significant figures)

Answer #1

Given the mass of the box m = 15kg, the coefficient of kinetic friction between the table and the box is = 0.20, the coefficient of static friction between the table and the box is = 0.25 and the appliet force F = 78N.

A) The maximum value of static friction (fmax) is given by,

Here fmax is less than the applied force F. So the box accelerates.

B) The kinetic friction is given by,

C) When the body slides, the net force (Fnet) is given by,

D) The acceleration of the box (a) is given by,

A box rests on top of a flat bed truck. The box has a mass of m
= 18 kg. The coefficient of static friction between the box and
truck is μs = 0.8 and the coefficient of kinetic
friction between the box and truck is μk = 0.61.
1)The truck accelerates from rest to vf = 17 m/s in t
= 13 s (which is slow enough that the box will not slide). What is
the acceleration of the...
