Step 1

Given:

Mass of the crate = 100 kg

Coefficient of static friction µs = 0.4

Coefficient of kinetic friction µk = 0.2

Step 2

Case 1st :

The girl is pushing but the crate does not move therefore frictional force is static.

Case 2nd :

In this case the crate is moving therefore frictional force is kinetic.

Step 3

Case 1st :
