A box of bananas weighing 30N rests on a horizontal surface. The coefficient of static friction between the box and the surface is 0.40, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.20N.
a.) If no horizontal force is applied to the box and the box is at rest, how large is the friction force exerted on the box?
fs = (0.40)(30N)
fs = 12N?
b.) What is the magnitude of the friction force if a monkey applies a horizontal force of 7.0N to the box and the box is initially at rest?
c.) what minimum horizontal force must the monkey apply to start the box in motion?
d.) What minimum horizontal force must the monkey apply to keep the box moving at constant velocity.
fk = (0.20)(30)
e.)if the monkey applies a horizontal force of 15N, what is the magnitude of the friction force....?
