    @ swin u need to know what plane u are working on is it an incline plane or an horizontal plane/

    coefficient of static friction=static frictional force/ normal rection

    I assume the plane is horizontal: the normal reaction=weight=mg ur

    @hubertH it doesn't say. so i assumed it was horrizontal

    so u knw how to get to the answer right?

    but is static friction only involved in inclined plane?

    No! static friction is the force required to set the body in motion in our case it 's given as 258.0N

    Well they're asking from the coefficient of static friction?

    coefficient of static friction=static friction force/normal reaction

    so i say that Fnet = \[\mu _{s} - Fg = ma?\] a little do you?

    well if it's starting to move wouldn't it be Ff = Mu(s) Fn?

    so it's Ff/Fn

    If they ask for acceleration and give kinetic friction is it still the same equation except it's Mu(k) - Fn = ma?

    no! kinetic friction is the smallest force that keeps the system moving @ constant speed
