Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@ swin u need to know what plane u are working on is it an incline plane or an horizontal plane/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1coefficient of static friction=static frictional force/ normal rection

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I assume the plane is horizontal: the normal reaction=weight=mg ur

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@hubertH it doesn't say. so i assumed it was horrizontal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so u knw how to get to the answer right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but is static friction only involved in inclined plane?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No.. then I wouldn't be asking lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No! static friction is the force required to set the body in motion in our case it 's given as 258.0N

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well they're asking from the coefficient of static friction?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so i say that Fnet = \[\mu _{s}  Fg = ma?\] a little do you?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember u're given the Fs and the mass only

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is no Fa, no Fnet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well if it's starting to move wouldn't it be Ff = Mu(s) Fn?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[mus =\frac{ ?Fmus }{Nr ? }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I have never used Nr in my FBD before?

hubertH

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nr is ur normal reaction=mg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok so it's just normal force (Fn)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and since it's horizontal Fnet = 0N

hubertH

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is Fnet standing fo?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The vector pointing upward

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok i got it, Mu(s) = .66

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's it bro congrats and keep on going forwad

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If they ask for acceleration and give kinetic friction is it still the same equation except it's Mu(k)  Fn = ma?

hubertH

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no! kinetic friction is the smallest force that keeps the system moving @ constant speed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright because i have a big physics test and I don't really understand forces lol
