Trying to remember the question properly, but how would I go about solving a problem that goes like this: "A man is dragging a 500N box by a rope 20m on a rough floor with a force of 600N. What is the kinetic friction?"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The friction coefficient is 1.2 ... as the Drag caused by friction is 600/500= 1.2 times the weight that is on top.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know why I can easily do something like this in Calc, but it all goes over my head in Physics. Thanks for the help!
